Austin GDC Slides

I know a couple of people were interested in seeing the slides I presented at the Austin GDC, so I’ve (finally) made them available for download.

There are two versions available. The slides are available in their native PowerPoint (.ppt) format, as well as in PDF format for those who don’t have access to PowerPoint. The PPT version is preferable, since it contains some of my notes for each slide. I sometimes include slides without much descriptive text on them, so having the notes available will help others to know what I was trying to communicate. For some reason there’s something a little denuding about putting my notes out there with the slides, but so be it.

The PDF file does not contain the notes, since I couldn’t figure out an easy way to do that. But there is this option available for those who cannot open PPT files. (Of course, if you really want the notes and you don’t have PowerPoint, you can always grab OpenOffice.)

I would welcome any comments people have about the slides, so feel free to send them my way. And please let me know if any slides need clarification.

    Excellent work! It is very interesting just as is, and for an already versed person in this matters. Hope you could put up a transcription of your whole talk. Please follow the example of Greg Costik with his talk about randomness:

    Good job!

    I’ll certainly make a transcript or recording available, if possible. I don’t know of any audio recording that was done, and I’m pretty sure there was no video recording. But if I hear about any, I’ll put it up here if they’ll let me.

    Fascinating slides – you sure did cover a heck of a lot of ground! That many slides would have taken me 3 hours to lecture from 😉

    I too would appreciate a recording if any surfaces – it sounds like a great talk. And as a stranger to the modern IF universe (although familiar with the oldies), I’d love to hear more about Blue Lacuna, etc.
