talking at reboot

It seems that Thomas wasn’t kidding: I actually am talking at rebootbeing the on the schedule makes it so:

Reboot Schedule Snip

Being a speaker gives me access to the secret Speakers Guide, in which I find a lovely innovation:

Questions and answers are abandoned this year. Instead they’ve been replaced by “thoughts”. Ie. ending your session asking “So what’s your thoughts?” instead of asking “Questions?”. Not commenting on each thought being shared, just passing on the torch to the next one in the crowd that has a thought. You’ve just inspired several hundred highly thoughtful people, let them share…

Wow — I love that. I am going to try that at my next talk….or for that matter my next class lecture. Thanks to the reboot people for a great thought!
