TEDx video on EZ Water finally uploaded.

Posted Thursday, September 19, 2013

Just released: TEDx video on EZ water. It tells the story in 24 minutes – a kind of capsule emphasizing some of the most salient points.
Getting that video posted has been quite a saga. The live presentation took place in Canada, at the University of Guelph. The backdrop was neat, the atmosphere was full of anticipatory excitement, but technical aspects of the production gave reason for pause: problems with microphones, failure of slide advance, etc.
When the edited version was posted I was shocked. My son Ethan, who prepared the slides and rarely loses his cool, was outraged. Everything that could possibly go wrong went wrong. It contained the wrong set of slides. Animations were left unanimated. Videos became stills. Audio was barely audible. And more… Worse, they lost the original video recordings.
We had to pull the presentation from the web.
I won’t bore you with the saga that followed, except to say that one and a half years elapsed before the video could be properly edited through dint of hard work by Abe King and my son Ethan.
It’s just been posted. Please have a look. If you like it, pass the link along to your friends: http://youtu.be/i-T7tCMUDXU
