High Precision, Not High Energy: Video

Back in August, I gave a talk in Stockholm at the Nordita workshop for science writers, about precision measurement searches for physics beyond the Standard Model. There's now video of this online:

The video quality isn't great, but if you'd like a clearer look at the slides, I've posted them on SlideShare. The talk was divided into two parts, though the video is not:

Part 1:

Part 2:

As always, watching this is a slightly weird experience. I appear a little more low-key in the video than I remember feeling as a speaker, but this is probably because I've been doing a lot of editing of promotional videos for the new book, and those are necessarily a bit more hyper. But anyway, if you want to know what my speaking style is like for more technical sorts of things, well, here's your chance.

(If you want to see either style of talk live, shoot me an email; I enjoy going places and giving talks, and we can probably work something out...)

Several of the other talks are also online now, part of a playlist associated with that video, if you want to see more of what went on. I can't say anything about the quality of the other video, because I'm very self-centered, and only watched my own...

Having just returned from a long trip where I gave three talks, one of the first things I saw when I started following social media closely again was this post on how to do better presentations. The advice is the usual stuff-- more images, less text, don't read your slides, and for God's sake,…
That's the title of my slightly insane talk at the DAMOP (Division of Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics of the American Physical Society) conference a couple of weeks ago, summarizing current topics of interest in Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics. I'll re-embed the slides at the end of…

Reports that researchers elicited a temperature "lower than absolute zero" might make one question the meaning of the word absolute.  On Built on Facts, Matt Springer writes "temperature is a relationship between energy and entropy, and you can do some weird things to entropy and energy and get the…

Hi Chad, it looks like you accidentally put up two copies of the part 2 slides instead of part 1 and part 2.

I'm really sorry for the low quality of the videos. Still better than nothing though. We're supposed to get an A/V system installed in the room, but that's been discussed since 5 years or so and still hasn't become reality...
