The first of four recordings from the 2011 ISA-NE Methodology Workshop: Fred Schaffer, University of Massachusetts-Amherst.
Upon re-listening to this lecture from a past year I don’t think I can really improve on it, so in lieu of a new recording of the same old material I offer this: IR Liberalism.
Note that in order to get this to play with both the audio and the video at the same time you need to download the file to your computer, and then import it into iTunes (where it seems to work fine) or play it with QuickTime Player 7.6.6 (not the 10.1 version of the QuickTime player that ships with newer Mac computers — the older player is a free download from Apple’s website, and it works with every MacOS back to about 10.4, I believe. QuickTime Player 10.1 thinks that .m4a files are audio-only, so it doesn’t look for the video track.
Apologies for the slight technical difficulties here, but I have the lecture only in two parts: a pdf of the slides, and an audio file of the spoken part. These are supposed to go together in one file, but just at the moment this isn’t working … hopefully it will be resolved soon and I will be able to upload the correct version. But for the moment, here are the slides, and the audio is below (you can listen to it via your web browser, or download it to your hard drive for offline listening).
UPDATE: apparently the podcast works properly if you download it — it has audio and video synched together. Still working on precisely why this is less seamless than it always has been in the past, but for now, you have several options: listen to the audio below and watch the pdf slides; download the file and play it in your web browser; download the file and play it in some other version of QuickTime Player. Ah, technology — love it and hate it.
The q and a following my 14 June 2011 talk at Koc University. My favorite bit here is when I am asked how I would design a Ph.D. program in IR; I’m fond of my answer, and if anyone has a few spare million dollars or euros lying around and wants to start up a new program, let me know.
