Phew - that was quite an experience. Thanks to everyone who showed up, despite the cold and the late date so close to the holidays. And thanks for all of the really nice comments I've received since last night!
Anyway, I've posted a few versions of my slides for those of you who missed it.
- The usual PDF version
- A zipped archive of my Keynote 2 presentation (for those up-to-date with all things Mac)
- PPT is on the way, but something is keeping Keynote from making the conversion.
There are a few extras thrown in for good measure, including a controversial "parallel lives" claim about me vs. Murray Gell-Mann. At least one other person in the last 13 years (when I first noticed this) has recently confirmed the slightly uncanny resemblance between the young Murray and the putatively young Steinberg, both in terms of looks and CV. Kind of a silly comparison to make, I realize, but I've been meaning to get this on the blog at some point, so what better time than the end of the World Year?
