Q & A starts around 52:30 minutes. Since some readers were curious, George Gilder questions me about falsifiability around 56 minutes.
Yes, I was aware how close to the edge of the stage I was. It was a small platform. I’m used to running up and down the aisles waving my arms around like an ape, so I felt rather constrained here.
And as long as we’re at it, I’m no fan of “slides.” I try to have few to no pictures or other aides other than those that are essential. It’s a mystery why any would want to have a picture that says boldly, “These are the words I’m saying” while I’m saying the words that they’re saying.
I have learned that businesses now call groups of slides “decks.” They speak of “working on decks”, and this is true. Vast manpower is given over to perfecting PowerPoint pictures that are shown only once or rarely. The scourge of WYSIWYG.
