Getting back to serious business, that’s the title of a National Symposium to be held by the Australian Agricultural and Resource Economics Society in Adelaide tomorrow and Friday (details here and program (PDF) here).
I’ll be appearing, but not in person. As discussed previously, I tried to arrange a videoconference, but that didn’t work, so I went instead for a prerecorded video appearance, which will be followed a bit later by a panel discussion in which I’ll take part by audioconference. I’m arranging to have the video turned into a podcast and will post this, along with my presentation, for anyone interested.
I have to admit I haven’t actually watched the video. Although I’m immune to most forms of the widespread fear of public speaking, I’m shy about watching myself on video. I find myself worrying about trivial mistakes and so on. But I have a feeling that I would be less worried about watching a podcast of myself, so I’ll probably go that way.
