Bill Diamond’s Talk: Critical Thinking in Science

Bill Diamond is one of my colleagues and my mentor at work. He’s reaching the end of his distinguished career as a full-time scientist, though I highly doubt that even in retirement will he ever stop being a scientist. For one of his last talks before retirement, he gave a lecture on critical thinking in science. The lecture was directed at the high school students of the Deep River Science Academy (my previous employer), though the general public were invited to attend the presentation.

I managed to record the lecture with a last-minute borrowed video camera (thanks Mark & Angela!). It’s my first time touching a video camera since high school, so things are a little rough. I also didn’t have a tripod nor an external mic available, so the quality is a bit low. So, I apologise to the viewers out there, but you get what you pay for!

Anyhow, without further ado, here’s the video on YouTube, broken into 10 minute segments (to make the YouTube overlords happy).
