Last week I had the opportunity to help organize and watch a media day with one of our professors. He's elderly so we did it at his building. Video interviews, photographs and a phone interview for National Public Radio kept us busy. I took the snapshot above during a technical glitch. I'm in a corner, staying out of the way, and being quiet as they videotape an interview. It took quite a while to set up all of that equipment!
All of this is in preparation for a new book being published this month: "How China became Capitalist," by Ronald Coase and Ning Wang.
It was really interesting to watch everyone at their work. I was quite impressed by the interviewer. We had to hunt around the building to find the proper place for the NPR phone interview. The sound technician finally found a room with very little ambient sound or echoes.
This is me with the two authors, I think it was taken before the interviews got underway.
