His Lesson 2 is dead on. I had the fortune to take 18.313 from him ("all probability is putting balls into boxes!"), and while I'd love to have been one of the students the rest of us cribbed from, I learned more from them than I did from most TAs.

his talk on talks is very good. I think we could get rid of 75% of journal articles with no loss to society. Too many people try to dress up their arguments, because ideas that are new&true&important are rare.
