You must be kidding, buddy! Harvard is the first of all universities in the
USA and even worldwide. I was glad I could afford to work at UGA LAW SCHOOL
back in 1985 as the tuition fees were about 8000$ a year, Harvard was
25.000$ per year. (That’s long ago, right?) And you are saying they cannot
afford an HD camera? You made me a laughing moment tonight, buddy!!

DebuggerTube says:

so true, this does happen. And only few see it as a chance for success.

Pierre Fred Walter says:

What, this is clearly an HD video but downsampled to play fast on Youtube.
All movies of this channel are HD and are professional in every respect.

Very interesting interview. My career was not a straight line either, going
from international lawyer to educator and corporate trainer and then to
freelance writer and musician. The interesting thing is that in America a
nonlinear career path is considered to be a signal of high IQ and
flexibility, while in Europe it’s considered as a ‘deviation’ and a
‘character weakness’. Guess why I like the American paradigm here? By the
way, in Asia, it’s quite the same as in Europe. Paper qualifications.

Thanks for sharing. I have been wondering how career transition is seen in
other parts of the world. Good information to consider in my job search.

Harvard can’t afford a hd camera?

IWantSoundKnowledge says:

well I guess Harvard can’t afford a fast internet connection to upload HD
720p. ha

IWantSoundKnowledge says:

I was being sarcastic.
