Playing A Scientist On TV

So it turns out I don't totally loathe the sound of my own voice when it's not being recorded on an answering machine. (Dunno what the phone lines do to my voice, but I *HAAAAATE* to listen to myself on phone messages.) Recorded with a for-real lavalier mike? It's fine. (I mean, it doesn't sound like me, but it's not horrid and loathsome.)

Three weeks ago I gave a 2.5-hour seminar on using data from my project. It was webcast to a couple dozen viewers, and it also got recorded.

I watched the whole thing last week and was generally pleased. I say "um" a lot, and I do some weird things with my hands from time to time, but overall I'm happy with it.

Which is good, because just today I finished adding it to our website for all the world of future users to see, and it would really suck to have to have it up there if I hated it...
