Some interesting ideas; did not see the presenter as engaged with the audience -- who seemed to number about 10 -- very low turnout.
Very limited connections drawn to other bases. For a teacher like me who is not strong in logs, I would need to do a lot more than listen to the philosophy and epistemology of logarithms.
The speaker could well have pre-recorded his presentation, for all the breaks he took. Maybe it was pre-recorded from NCTM (only slightly kidding)
This was probably the least engaging of the GMD presentations, most of which I've deeply enjoyed, if not was blown away by.
Let's hope next time we'll have a teacher who listens to his audience, engages them and interacts with them.

I only listening to part of it - it's dinner time here on the West Coast!
But I will listen to it later.
This is not a topic I teach, or have even thought about in over 40 years. But the approach made the concept simple.

We are math teachers who share what we've learned, because we don't want our classes to drain the energy from students. Professional development among friends, not just colleagues. Fun! Immediately useful! Interesting!
