Back in 2002, i.e. shortly after I changed from what is now called international business administration to economics and statistics, I was told in an econometrics seminar that I had to present a paper written by Baltagi and Li entitled "Double Length Artificial Regression for Testing Spatial Dependence". By just reading the title you can probably imagine that I swore like a sailor. From the 50 people who showed up in the first two lectures of the preceding econometrics course only 2 people survived (at that time econometrics wasn't a mandatory course for economics students). But if that wouldn't have been enough, we started with a completely new topic, namely spatial econometrics. To cut a long story short, I unexpectedly--thanks to the help of my advisors Thomas Url and Werner Müller--passed with flying colors. But what really caused a mass release of 5-HT was what my former seminar-colleague (the other guy who survived) Markus Pock told me today:
Hey, I've just returned from a conference in Thessaloniki about the use of panel data in health economics held by Badi Baltagi and Pravin Trivedi. Guess how I felt after Baltagi started to go through YOUR old presentation. He sayed he found it on the web the other day and that he doesn't know these guys... but it is well done!
How cool is that??

Don't believe me? Here is a picture of me and my presentation in 2002:

And here is Baltagi (picture taken by Trivedi) and my presentation in 2006:

Maybe you find at least parts of my old presentations for your presentations useful too. Most topics are evergreens.
