All VideoCasts are world-accessible except for NIH-only and HHS-only events. Individual event coordinators determine the access level. This is how CIT determines which videos are world-accessible or NIH/HHS only. VideoCasts marked NIH/HHS-only can only be seen from computers on NIH/HHS networks or from outside networks with VPN software. The HHS network includes the following agencies: ACF, AoA, AHRQ, ATSDR, CDC, CMS, FDA, HHS, HRSA, IHS, NIH, PSC, and SAMHSA.
You will need an NIH VPN account and software on your home computer to watch NIH-only or HHS-only VideoCasts. Virtual Private Network (VPN) allows NIH employees to access the NIH network and Institute computing resources over a third-party Internet Service Provider (ISP) such as that from Verizon FIOS/DSL or Comcast Cable. You will need to contact your third-party ISP to verify that the ISP allows VPN over their network. More information is at http://remoteaccess.nih.gov or staff can call the NIH Service Desk at (301) 496-4357 for VPN information.
But, even if we had been able to watch live, we would not have been able to submit questions, I'm guessing. (Does this format even include Q&A?) I'll just have to get Dr. Gill's email address if I want to hassle him about "neurasthenia" and "The Yellow Wall-Paper."
Also, I was told by someone who asked NIH directly that the public might be able to watch later (see "Past Events" link on NIH videocast site) BUT the video might be edited (not sure yet if this is true but if it is what is NIH afraid of showing?).
Does anyone here know someone who attended the presentation please, so that we can hear verbatim what was actually presented on the day, and what the contents of the slides were on the day? Then we can compare with the 'watered' down edited version we get in a few days time - if any. Thanks.
