Slides from my (controversial) presentation at the ILICA conference in NYC on 9/25/09. I made one small correction on slide 14 to reflect the feedback received during the presentation. I replaced ~15-20m, with ~15m, which does not change the substance of the controversy that I was relating about.
I also unpacked the animations so they will work on line.
