Blogging and presenting

Lorcan 1 min read

Blogging has been a bit thin lately – and may continue to be for a few days – as I have been traveling and have not managed to shake off a heavy cold.
I gave a presentation at the University of Iowa last week. It is the type of event I like, as you interact with a range of folks from the same institution on their home ground.
During my long layover in O’Hare Airport I got to thinking about presentations …. A few months ago, at another event, somebody approached me and said “that wasn’t nearly as radical as we were expecting”. I am not sure if this means I am doing something right or something wrong 😉
Anyway, a couple of years ago I announced in these pages that I was not accepting any further speaking invites for the year. I think it is about time to do that again. I don’t like turning things down, but cannot agree to everything. Having a declaration here that my dance card for the rest of the year is full will help 😉
Update: I added some and took some away from an earlier version. How quickly will this version replace the first one?
