I'm out...

Today's regularly-scheduled post has been bumped due to the fact that I have to go to Boston (I hear it's lovely this time of year). During the past two months, I've spent most of my paid time researching and helping write a speech for the head honcho at my company. He's presenting it tomorrow to an odd consortium of academics and business people -- many of whom will probably bristle at much of what he says -- and I've been tasked with the oh-so-important duty of advancing the PowerPoint slides. After all, a well-timed multimedia presentation is obviously a now-essential component of any lecture, just ask Al Gore.

I kid. I really am looking forward to it and am honored to have been asked to attend, even if I am just there for tech support (and, possibly, for anger-deflection purposes).

Anyway, I'll definitely post something on Wednesday. Whether it's something of substance or something like this, I can't say.

Murphy's Law being what it is, be sure you have a Plan B for the presentation. Sock puppets may be apropos.

Being that I'm a little compulsive about these things, I had copies of the presentation on a memory stick, CD and network drive at work, in addition to having sent it to two of my email accounts. When the CEO's giving a speech in front of a hostile crowd -- the nation's biggest developers -- best to be super careful.

Plan B, rather, F, was to depict the slides with an interpretive dance routine I've been working on.

I like the idea of the "interpretive dance routine." What a visual! We'll look forward to the video. Been there - got the t-shirt. I don't believe in luck. Hope it goes well. Kevin Dayhoff http://kevindayhoff.blogspot.com/
