  1. I gave this presentation on FOOD day, fri 9th August, but we had tek problems, so the camera didnt work. I was invited to give the presentation again, so I did yesterday, thankfully the camera worked. The second talk is shorter, half hour. You can watch both vids, unfortunately in the first you can just listen.
