As a change of pace — and to a different medium — today’s offering is “GEMS FROM THE DIAMOND,” my June 19 Convocation Address to Northwestern University’s Weinberg College of Arts & Sciences graduating class of 2010. It’s ten minutes long and available for online viewing. There are two options.
The first is on Northwestern’s You Tube Channel and replays the original webcast: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DP3Uhiol6Vs
The second includes a brief student introduction (Part I), followed by my speech as seen from the cheap seats (Part II): http://www.youtube.com/user/harperstevenj#p/u/1/jrMfosruCiA
Also on my You Tube channel containing the second version is a clip of a short reading from The Partnership at a recent book appearance. (http://www.youtube.com/user/harperstevenj#p/u/2/p5zOMn_-bAM)
