Any way this one can be recorded? The main bits, regardless of subsequent small-group discussions.

I attempted to record this but accidentally did so in a way that didn't capture audio.

I would say that, if-and-only-if it's still alive for Alex, I'd enjoy him just writing down the basic things he said in his talk in like a couple of paragraphs, both the preamble at the top and his 4 slides or so.

How many times have I done similar... :D

Thanks for attempting though!

Guy- the slides are available here: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1AhDGjZrl7Xk7lssG7HwsWBtJY8oJ5ynuJMCI-7toox8/edit?usp=sharing

Would love to chat with you 1-1 about this if you're interested. Perhaps we could even record a 1-1 conversation and post it for others.
