  1. Top 10 things I did right or wrong in grad school (Update - try this Google-cached link; thanks, Swarup!): PPT Slides of a talk by Gregg Morrisett to grad students at Harvard taking a course on professional development. [Hat tip: Michael Mitzenmacher's comment on Matt Welsh's post urging grad students to learn how to give a talk].

  2. Ross McKenzie: What makes a good undergraduate research project?

  3. Chris Arnade in Scientific American Blogs: Why It’s Smart to Be Reckless on Wall Street.

    Strange -- it worked just 24 hours ago. Now I notice that links to two other talks at that page don't work either!

    I googled. With the first link that appeared, I clicked on Quick View and it showed up'ten+things..'&hl=en&gl=au&pid=bl&srcid=ADGEESjdrz3l_W7VVN7kKj22vLwtDHnnYpuw1j1OfgjBA-CyK_NpbN3DPHorJPNeb5xFEG87yUZQ15mCU0LA4CvXIIqt6ym6CaSC_ueoFxcrtZTqLdqRXkqeIrLWza8JX4Keh47NMSt2&sig=AHIEtbSH-mOs-3s8pcUZD-e1b-hD0l2xTg
