I stumbled across this vid of Bob doing a Nonzero lecture. Pretty cool. Some good examples of his dry humor. Enjoy!

PS the biggest question it raised was "how tall is Bob?" The video makes him look to be taller than I always imagined.

I've seen that talk before, but many thanks for the reminder, uncle eb. It was well worth watching again.

As to height, I'm surprised that you didn't always think Bob was a giant among men. Little known fact -- he actually sits in a deep hole while doing diavlogs, just to bring himself down to the level of those with whom he's conversing.

And that's not just a gratuitous slap at Mickey.

P.S. Ten points for your post's title.

thanks for the link.

yet more proof that Bob truly deserves the much-abused title of "Public Intellectual."
