Video "Lessons from the Peloton"
I've prepared an 8 minute video Lessons from the Peloton in which I discuss the concept of group sorting and phase transitions in pelotons. I show my own footage of various bicycle races, flocks, non-biological systems, and other kinds of human organizations. It's a "popular" video, which I've actually entered as a submission to the Vancouver Island Short Film Festival. As an amateur videographer, I don't have a good sense of its chances in making it into the festival, but whether the video gets into the festival or not, it helps to explain in a non-technical way some of my own work and interest in the behavior of pelotons.
