  • I have improved the sound quality of the audio. I've re-mastered the audio track and loaded a higher bandwidth file to the server.

  • The visuals and audio track have been updated to properly attribute the falling masses experiment to Galileo. Thanks again for your comments.

  • I am working on the correction to the Newton reference. Unfortunately, it requires re-recording the audio track and resyncing it to a new slide deck. Thanks for you catching the error.

  • Kevin, It is amazing how distracting a factual error is in a presentation. Galileo demonstrated that different masses fall at the same rate before Isaac Newton was born. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galileo http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_newton

  • Lucid. It makes sense to perhaps add a point on:
    - how to position yourself as a facilitator with a scientific av aid (ppt/keynote et all)
    - challenges in sustained attention for a duration of more than 10 mins of darkness!

    Thanks & brilliant work!
