ET talk at Harvard, February 21, 2007

Edward Tufte, "An Academic and Otherwise Life, An N = 1," Wednesday, February 21, 2007, 7.00 pm, at the Biolabs Seminar Room (#1068), at 16 Divinity Avenue, Cambridge.

A nostalgic account of ET's education and careers in statistics, political economy, analytical design, landscape sculpture, book publishing, and consulting. The themes are influential teachers, turning points, and lessons learned. A question session will follow the talk.

They're apparently videotaping for internal use only. I gave a similar talk at Stanford in December and it was supposed to be recorded but there was a technical problem.

I'm in Boston giving my one-day course and thus was able to slip in this evening talk, which will be very much in the first personal singular and not about analytical design.

There is a recent brief interview recorded on the evening January 29, 2007 as I was driven from San Diego to a public television station to do an interview for a book show. I'd already used up 150,000 words of talk that day in the one-day course and consequently . . . .
