Videos of My Talks & Media Appearances

Just as with my articles I've done a poor job linking on this site to videos of my talks and media appearances around the web when they've happened.  I recently had to pull together a CV as part of a nomination for another talk, which means that I had to collect links to a number of videos of me all together.  Most are media appearances.  A few are talks.  

(All links will take you to videos.  A select few are embedded here for convenience.)
