I am very grateful to Caltech, specially Eric van der Velde, for organising and recording my presentation on eTheses at Caltech last month. See The power of the Scientific eThesis, a combined audio, video and screenshow. Caltech have done a very good job of stitching it together. Many of the “slides” were in scrolling HTML so the slide-count is artificially high – each scroll generates a new “slide”. Total time about 67 minutes.
The themes include:
- homage to Caltech: Jack Dunitz, Linus Pauling, Verner Schomaker and Ken Trueblood.
- data-driven science in crystallography – examples from 1973 to present day.
- semantic web and chemistry, including DBPedia
- Open Access
and questions at the end.
Since my presentations are taken from many thousand slides it gives an accurate impression of a typical talk, where I do not know in advance exactly what components I shall touch on. In a few places my machine ran slowly so there are minor hiatuses.
