    How should I have done that?

    Maybe the easiest way is this: first choose below the edit box in which you compose your message the item “Format comments as Mardown + itex”. Then simply type


    to make a link appear. For instance


    gives the link that Toby produced.

    Is anyone else having trouble viewing these videos? What happens for me is that the video runs for a while, then decides to terminate at some apparently random point before the end. If I start it again, it does the same thing but stops at a different apparently-random point. Sometimes I have some luck with starting it part-way through, but it’s a frustrating process. I really want to hear what Manin has to say!

    These are really interesting interviews, by the way. In particular, I really enjoyed some of the snippets I’ve seen from the interview of MacPherson, particularly his thoughts on Mathematics and Music, Mathematics and Playfulness, and his experiences of mathematical culture in the former Soviet Union (which were for him like “a paradise”).

    The interview of Deligne was marred by the fact that he’s so quiet – between the low volume and his accent, I missed a great deal. Paul Sally’s I could hear much better, as one could predict. :-)
