We were fighting dinosaurs?

Why are you surprised? Do you doubt we & they inhabited the earth together at some point?

I guess I have a narrow view of what "we" means. In this case, my view is defensible, since I doubt the cognitive and social apparatus you were discussing could have evolved anywhere near that early. I think it's a primate thing, most likely hominid. And the enemies that mattered would have been other groups our own species.

Seriously, that was a great talk. I will likely be sharing it with many people. You should see if you can get the timing of the slides improved.

Sorry to hear that! It's possible they did upload the wrong slides--or possibly some version of them that wasn't the "final" one. More likely, though, they just didn't do as good a job as they could have w/ timing. You can downolad the slides yourself here

There are likely videos of lectures that aren't so different from this one ... maybe try this NCAR one? (It's got a slightly different orientation but the gist is the same)
