Interesting thing is that the video lectures are being edited more for video learning than for live-lectures. The theory is that listening to lectures on the internet is really boring. And that content needs pushed more quickly due to the social phenomenon of impatience in front of modern devices. What I am saying is: whereas live lectures are perceived at a certain pace, computer lectures have to go much more quickly, even though it is the same exact information. It's all in the editing.

Probably the most important part of the Trump speech in Alabama was the this major turn-around on political donations (see video). Every candidate who accepts campaign donations does it under the same pretenses Trump now appears to endorse. So you begin with a major premise -- "I'm rich enough to avoid manipulation by special interests (by spending my own money)" -- and you end up with the confession that it was all just unknowing populist bluster.
I'm going to start a new segment on my wiki called "notebooks." It will collect and contain links and remarks on subjects that interest me. The idea is to have a storage space of material for future harvest. I often lose thoughts and resources. I can't keep them in the back of my mind. This is especially true of news items that provoke me. I lose them when the time comes to actually use them in a work product. So I'll start tossing items into my notebook, organized by subject. It will only be short remarks, links and notes to myself.

This looks interesting. The way they have framed the issue looks very good. The question is whether the idea of connoisseurship will even enter the picture at all (as it should). The book I am working on now will expand upon this idea. Why do I already suspect that the conference won't mention either my work or its contribution? I doubt the answer has anything to do with cynicism and everything to do with the nature of academic "clubs."
