UPDATE: The archived conversation is now available online in full. There’s a syncing problem, so you’ll have to bare with it. My original post follows, along with the 90-minute chat.
NOTE: It’s happening right now (it’s 6pm EST as I type this), so it will likely be over within the hour, and if you happen to be reading this at that time, hopefully the recorded/streamed conversation will be immediately archived and will be available for on-demand viewing. If it’s not available when you read this post, it should be eventually, so you may have to bookmark this page and return later.
