Comment on Computational Microscopy Video (includes lensless methods)

Computational Microscopy by Laura Waller

Your diagram at 18:05 is not the way it works. Your every day matrix methods ALL are used by tens of thousands of groups and individuals all using related methods. The things you do not know, mostly there will be others who do. If you haven’t learned something yet, or don’t have time to memorize those other methods, you can collaborate globally. So if you use matrix methods, there are direct connections to wave optic groups. Direct connections to quantum optic groups.

You do NOT have to go through layers in a particular order as implied by that drawing. Interconnected nodes is more realistic. And it can be mapped, because most of the works now are in digital, mine-able form.

I would not complain so much – except that human viewers pick up things in an instant. And they keep the memes and diagrams and suggested organizing principles well beyond this video. You already have 4,969 views (14 May 2022) for a 48 minute video. If you count that as (3/4) hour at global GDP per capita, that time is already worth about 4969* (3/4)*15 — about $56,000 worth of human time spent. If you gave a lecture to a classroom of 30 people, would you not try harder to leave them many links, references, guides – more than just your words, facial expressions, voice and posture?

I like this video a lot. But when you talk to thousands of people on the Internet, you have to try harder, work harder and smarter. You are potentially talking to hundreds of millions of the billions who already use the Internet.  So go back to your old videos and add resources and hints and things to speed the search.
