This is one of those videos I keep coming back to. Each time I watch it, I find that it’s easier to understand.
Greg Craven (of manpollo.org and gregcraven.org) uploaded the playlist of all eight short videos comprising in total 1 hour and 15 minutes. Possibly the most illuminating hour and a quarter of anybody’s life — certainly of mine. It inspired me to write ‘ten doublings‘ a couple of years ago.
“This needs to be required listening for every person on the planet. Nothing else will matter if we don’t understand this.”
Questions, questions… 1) Does the >2.5 million views for part one represent (roughly) that number of unique viewers? 2) If so: how to get more people to watch more than just the first part? 3) What is it that causes that dip in the middle? 4) Why are humans so weird?
Hmm… the ‘one chunk’ video that uknowispeaksense offered me last year seems to have gone missing. But, serendipitously, Learning from Dogs introduced me to TDF today — and lo, and behold: listed in their ‘highest rated’ section is another one-chunk copy of Arithmetic, Population and Energy by Dr Albert Bartlett.
