The Lost Lectures

A Cloudspotter’s Guide

In his short and witty talk Gavin introduces us to the benefits of ‘cloud collecting’, talks us through some more interesting cloud varieties, argues against blue sky thinking in all its forms and encourages everyone to spend more time with their head in the clouds.
