Class 1 Slides & Video

Here are this weeks video & slides…

The video unfortunately starts a minute or so after convening the class, and does not have the slides separately broken out as is usually the case with Allard lecture capture. There is a bit of a story and adventure worth recounting that explains all of the above…

The reality is that there has been a “ghost in the machine” in B101 (and to some extent in the larger video capture system) that dates back to last semester. This week the originally as programmed video recording captured atrium video which the ghost weirdly decided was B101. That footage is of course not even remotely relevant to the course – at least until we get to the surveillance and privacy units 😉

The irony of this happening in a “Communications” course is of course not lost. Back in the day when I used to go to broadcasting awards shows and such, you could always count on microphone and other equipment failures…because irony always rules…

That said our intrepid tech/hero of this tale, Tom Dudas, caught the problem and set up the right recording as quickly as possible, and that is what (with the imperfections noted above) is attached here.

Bottom line is that although slides can provide the MNI (Minimum Necessary Information) it sure is nicer to have the video online.

At the end of the class we viewed Burger King’s take on Net Neutrality. To watch it again click below…
