The "article" (in reality, video description without formatting) and the comments are scrapped from YouTube. I don't think anything on that page is original. -- Best regards, Vladimir mailto:vladimir thecybershadow.net

That certainly explains the insightful, properly-capitalized comments like: "can't stand this guys accent." Web 2.0: Dumbing down society one idiot at a time.

I think that's actually good feedback. People usually don't mention that because they consider it politically incorrect. I've considered taking some enunciation classes but a speech pathologist I talked to said there's not a lot to improve at this point. One more actionable piece of feedback is this:
 this is an interesting presentation, but this guy might be the most
 annoying presenter ever– why is he compelled to ask everything as a
 question before making a statement? «foo is bar. what does bar mean?»
 pause for five seconds. somebody gives half-correct answer. presenter
 gives correct definition. repeat.

I've had this intuition for a while - asking questions works better live than in a recording because there's much less incentive to think of an answer for the offline viewer so those times are just dead. I think I'll ask fewer questions during recorded talks. Andrei
