  1. What a fawning interview. Awful.

    Thanks for trying, though.

  3. Do not forget that these people are not professional journalist whose job is to interview people and appear in front of the camera. Maybe for the next vidcast you can hire a professional...

  4. Anonymous #1 & #2:
    These are not controversial people and
    issues. What questions would you have
    liked to have been asked? (Maybe they
    can still submit them in writing.)

  5. Thanks for both videos. It's great to see a bit of FCRC for those of us that couldn't make it.

  6. Thanks Ryan for the advice you gave in the last minute of the interview.

    As an obscure grad student advised by a prof with no perseverance, my only successes so far were due to that philosophy. Now I am motivated to push more.

  7. Are the conference talks going to be available online?

  9. Thanks Ryan for the advice you gave in the last minute of the interview.

    You're welcome! Had I prepared at all for this question, I would have phrased my advice with fewer cliches:

    Whenever possible, avoid competitions or worries about what others are doing. (This is different from *learning* from others or *working* with others, which you should definitely try to do!) Study questions that excite you so much that you can effectively communicate your excitement. Interesting questions are not sacred: you do not have to ask for permission to work on them. Continuously challenge your intuitions to understand your questions better.

  11. It would help if you prepare some questions for the video cast before the interview. Reading a tutorial on carrying out interviews might also help.

  12. Great interview!
    I like Ryan. He's nice.

    I wish to see more interviews with more complexity people.
