Re: [xmca] new video by Nikolai Veresov

Colin, etc.,

Thank you for the update.  As someone reading Vygotsky's work for the first
time, I'll testify that the Professor Veresov's videos on *Thinking and
Speech *are indeed extremely helpful, as well as charming.  Veresov
introduces that set <http://vimeo.com/10069459> of (Vimeo) lectures thusly:

“This book, *Thinking and Speech*, is a kind of unknown country, unknown
land for you, and to find orientation in this land, you need to have a map
or navigator in your car, so I would like to help you to escape the
superficial reading that very often brings knowledge but doesn’t bring
understanding.  So I will give you the theoretical and methodological
contexts, and you will find them in the content – not to be lost in this
huge book.”

The lectures are great, and I took plenty of notes on
One great thing about that series is that I could download the videos to my
iphone (and therefore watch them on the treadmill at the gym!).
Unfortunately, I am unable to view the new ones on my phone.  If anyone has
advice in this regard, please share.
