My PechaKucha talk from June 18, 2015 attempted to start exploring what I believe is a HUGE concept: how do we determine the things we love and hate? Do we draw lines? Do we have to? This is just the beginning of a question I regularly pose to myself. I’d like to keep exploring, drilling down into the whys. For now, this is a starting place.
Note on a big correction: I misspoke (part of the joy and challenge of delivering a talk that only allows for 20 seconds each for a total of 20 slides!) about the number of deaths that occurred under the Stalin regime. Jeez, no biggie, right? I had said 6 million and had intended to say 30 million – though even that number is contested for over and under-estimation.
