Tony Karrer

This is a topic that I've been wondering about for a while and Donald Clark hits on it in his post : Professor Lewin - "It sounds arrogant, I know, but it's better to see a first class lecture on video than a mediocre one in the flesh."

The same can apply to most standard teaching and training lectures. Why would a student attend lectures by a professor that aren't great just because they are local?
