Link to my JMM prezi talk

January 13, 2015

I seem to have caught a break at the San Antonio airport, with free wifi. So I will take this opportunity to offer a link to my prezi talk.

One embarrassing omission from my talk is the existence of many public facing math podcasts. Embarrassing not because I knew about them – I didn’t – but because I should have, since after all I participate in a weekly podcast myself, so of course I know it’s a new and exciting medium. Luckily, the audience member who pointed out my mistake has agreed to write a guest post surveying the math podcast landscape, so stay tuned for that.

    As the other Josh frequenting this blog (see, my avatar has bigger lips), I don’t think you should feel too bad about missing the math podcasts. I’m avidly, actively, engaged in many areas of the math community on-line and have never even seen any references to math podcasts until now.

    OT: The kindle version of your “Doing Data Science” book is on sale at Amazon today.

    I have been thinking of starting a math/CS theory podcast (see http://jeremykun.com/2014/06/12/three-years-old-and-an-idea-for-a-podcast/). I love storytelling (have done some performance literature) and I have the technical skills to make the podcast. But finding the time to do this while also doing research, teaching, promoting myself, etc., is so damn hard.

    I didn’t see a mention of 538.com. Do you consider that to be data journalism?

      It’s there

      It’s the 8th item under “Making the case”, but it is spelled out so that may be why you missed it (fivethirtyeight.com). I was only able to see about 20 minutes of the talk, but the part I saw included it (and Upshot).

    I really enjoyed your talk, Cathy! I wanted to say “Hi” after, but these conferences leave little time unscheduled… Also, totally digging the fantastic use of Prezi!

    I actually have a question about digging up data. I have this half-cocked op-ed idea, but it would require finding some decent data on the number of classes listed as “College Algebra” or lower taught by graduate students at PhD granting universities, as well as the number of adjunct faculty with PhDs teaching at community colleges. However, being locked safely in the ivory tower myself, I have no clue where to start looking for this kind of data! Any tips for a n00b?
