NOTE: I'VE SET UP A FLASH VERSION OF THIS TALK HERE. DON'T BOTHER TRYING TO DOWNLOAD THE QUICKTIME VERSION I DESCRIBED IN THIS POST. Recently I gave the Discovery Lecture at Carleton University in Ottawa, in which I talked about new developments in evolutionary biology. They sent me a DVD of the talk, and I got a lunatic notion in my head that I would figure out how to get all Web Two-Point-O-Ee and post the lecture online. They told me to go ahead as long as I put a watermark on. Ever eager to waste time, I slowly figured out how to do that on QuickTime. Then I uploaded it to, because they let you post big files. But that's where my superduper tech acumen falls apart, because for some mysterious reason the site won't convert it into a sleek, embeddable Flash format. If you don't mind the somewhat less sleek QuickTime, here's the talk. (If anybody wants to teach this tech cub a lesson or two on how to do this sort of thing, I'm all ears.)
