Guy Dickinson snarfed me along for a PechaKucha orgy this afternoon. “Hey, we’re doing this 20 slides for 20 seconds each thing later… have you got anything?”
Got on the bicycle, tore back to the apartment (yes, it does take 12 minutes), got on the laptop and whipped up a Keynote presentation about something I choose to call “making public data public[er]” — looking at the various “public service computing” projects I’ve been hacking together this year.
Back on the bike, back to reboot, tracked down Guy, put the presentation on his PowerBook and then suddenly it was time to go. Amazing experience: all the adrenalin I’ll need for the next month or so. Presentations from Guy, Michael Smith, Matt Webb, and Alexander Kjerulf were equally thrilling to watch.
You’re going to have a hard time convincing me that any presentation should take longer than 20 x 20 from now on. Thanks for having me along, Guy.
