As always, Jarred Diamond was hard to ingest, but his are words of wisdom.

Professor Diamond gave a great talk at the OFJCC. The room was packed, so seating was a bit difficult, as was parking. All in all, I prefer the auditorium at Cubberley for Commonwealth Club events.

Dr. Diamond is a knowledgable speaker on a fascinating subject, but his speech is often indistinct, making it hard to understand him. Also, the audience was very rude, very distracting.
