In the fall of 2002, we were fortunate enough to get RCD to board a plane from the swamps of Mississippi and to travel to Long Beach for a lecture. This was the first year I taught at CSULB and the future was bright. Dan Larson made this all possible. The lecture RCD gave was probably not at all what most of the attendants thought it was going to be - and many nodded off. But if you want to hear about RCD academic history at the UW and the rise of a great program (and the challenges) with a condensed version of 497 and 498 thrown in, you are in for a treat.
The file is currently in .m4v format which makes for long downloads before playing (it's 1gig). Im converting it to .mov so that it can be streamed. If you want to access the lecture now, please see:
