BMJ editors receive a steady stream of invitations to give talks around the world. We would love to accept them all. Such presentations give us a chance to learn, meet readers, and hear what you think of the BMJ and which issues you think we should be covering. Unfortunately time is too short for us to accept all invitations. What we can do, however, is to place copies of our talks on bmj.com, and we are starting to do so this week.
Slowly but surely we will build an archive. The talks are presented in Powerpoint, but we have kept pictures to a minimum to avoid bulky files and copyright problems. Perhaps in years to come we will include sound and video. The talks may be most useful to those who have heard them delivered, and we are starting with talks I gave in Accra and Kumasi in Ghana two weeks ago (on writing for medical journals and the future role of the general practitioner). The talks should, however, be intelligible to those who haven't heard them, and readers should feel free to use any of the slides themselves.
