Clouds, Graphs, Maps

A couple of days ago Mike posted notes on my CCCC talk from late last month, and I was reminded that I'm at least ten days past due on the video I said I would produce following the conference.

I recorded the talk to an mp3 yesterday afternoon and went to campus last night where I planned to use iMovie to sync the audio with jpegs of the slides. Because the slideshow includes text, I needed to get the resolution right, but, well, it started to get late. I started to get impatient. I was able to output a reasonably readable mp4 file, but for whatever reason, I couldn't get Google Video or Daily Motion to encode it. Finally Jumpcut accepted the file, so it's available below the fold (even if much of it suffers from jaggies). The original mp4 is available for download here.

Also, here are the links to most of the stuff shown in the slideshow (all except the graphs).
