THORIUM REMIX 2009 exists because I watched Google Tech Talks
while iPhone programming
, and randomly stumbled upon a Tech Talk about Thorium.
After consuming 4 hours of Tech Talks about Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor, I wanted to discuss it with friends with a strong science background.
But I didn't feel like I could ask anyone to sit through 4 hours of video just to have a discussion. (Even my first viewings were just playing Tech Talks in the background while coding.)
This represents the best I could accomplish in 2009. Fast paced. Closed Captioned. Copyright be darned. It allowed me to discuss LFTR with friends, and see if anyone could "shoot down" the concept.
By late 2010 it became the most popular YouTube video on the subject of Thorium and Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactors. It wasn't until 2011 that Kirk Sorensen travelled to my home town of Calgary and I was able to shoot my own footage to improve video quality.
