Having studied with Alder in the Cambrian era, this was an excellent review and some new stuff too. Definitely agree that Science 101 should be required for all thinking humans from grade school through college.
Outstanding!!!!! This is even better than having you in a live class since Bentley keeps you from going off on your non-linear tangents! :) Your descriptions of the key points and detailed explanations, even just touching the surface in this intro, are top-rate and pretty easy to follow. I would imagine that even English majors and art students would be able to follow along as you always contend when you're trying to sell the program. I agree 100% with James' comment that all thinking humans should be required to learn this, especially with you as the teacher! Even though I've had this course with you in the past and have discussed various topics in the course with you numerous times over the last few years, having this video record and many more to come in invaluable to anyone wanting to really understand these extremely important topics having to do with complexity and how the Universe really works!!!
One more very picky point that I forgot to mention concerns your pronunciation of Leibnitz. The German "ei" is pronounced as the English "i", not "ee"! Sorry to be so picky, but being someone who can speak German, I tend to cringe when I hear stuff like that! :)
Thoroughly enjoyed listening to this. As you mentioned Alder, the intro is a great review!
