  1. Rene murmuring right next to the camera after every McGee quip is quite distracting

  2. such and interesting talk. my father has been using shrimp shells as fertilizer for decades and now i know why it works – chitin!

  3. I love these talks, but the camera work and editing is terrible.  For example, its impossible to see whats on the display screen because of glare, so the camera needs to either zoom in or change angle.  Also when the picture slide is changed it should be edited to show the new slide, but the camera stays on Harold McGee.

  4. Amazing talk. Learned so many new things! Thanks for recording and sharing these videos!
