Assorted talks and speeches

A speech to Duke TIP scholars (Essay #13)

For some reason, Grinnell invited me to give a speech to Duke TIP scholars on Tuesday, 3 May 2016. Here’s the intended text of my speech.

Speech to 2016 Graduating CS Seniors (Essay #29)

Text of a speech that I should have given.

Recruiting faculty who care about diversity (Essay #34)

Notes for a panel on best practices.

Another speech to Duke TIP award winners (Musing #310)

I did something right in 2016, since they asked me to come back in 2017. Or maybe it’s just that I’m the only one who says yes. Given Friday, 5 May 2017.

Baccalaureate (non-)address 2017 (Musing #328)

A speech I did not give.

A speech to graduating CS majors (and a few near-majors) in the class of 2018 (Musing #630)

Third time’s a charm.

Comments from a panel at reunion 2018 (Musing #649)

Why did they ask me to participate?

Preparing slides for a presentation on the new digital-humanities CSC 151 (Musing #713)

Making a decent slide deck is hard.

Writing the talk to go with the slide deck is also hard.

Some words for graduating CS majors (and their families) in the class of 2020 (Musing #1073)

Words I wanted to share, although not the place.
