eResearch NZ 2016 Rob Elshire Plenary - YouTube

This was a a talk that I did for the eResearch conference in 2016. The back story is that Microsoft had not found a plenary speaker for the session they had sponsored. Less than one week before the conference this was realized by the organisers. I was asked to convert the talk I had planned to do into a plenary.

I've used ideas from this talk in other ways since then. It was my attempt to demonstrate some of the issues we have in our science system. Bear in mind that I had been in NZ less than 3 years when I put this together.

The talk led to a lot of interesting conversations at the meeting. Some lasting relationships eventuated from that. At the same time, the entrenched players continue to do what they have always done.

For some reason, REANNZ made all of their videos hidden. But if you have a link, you can still watch them. That is the case with this one as well.
