Thanks to everyone you attended my presentation last night. You were a wonderful group and had great questions.
Thanks to everyone who attended our makerspaces presentation yesterday at the Anderson branch of Lincoln City Libraries. Here’s our presentation, resources list, and proof that there is still a use for Workdbook.
Thanks to everyone who attended our presentation yesterday at the NLA conference. I’ve sent the slides to the organizers so they can get posted on the conference site but you can also find them right here.
Yesterday I received one of the best compliments on a PowerPoint presentation I had just given. One of the Do Space staff asked me at the end, “What software did you use to create that presentation?” Yes, it was PowerPoint but the presentation was so different than what she’d previously experienced that she didn’t even recognize it as a PowerPoint. I’ll definitely take that as a compliment.

Back in October 2004 I received the following note on a workshop evaluation:
One distractor [sic] was that the presenter referred to a .gif file as a .jif file. There are folks that rabidly insist that .gif be pronounced the same as .jif but that confuses the two file types when spoken that way. Common usage (and common sense) dictate that .gif be pronounced with the hard g sound to avoid confusion the the .jif file type. Like I said, it was a major distractor [sic] to me. It also pointed to a lack of basic understanding in an area where the instructor is supposed to be presenting correct information to others. It makes a person wonder what other bad habits he might be perpetuating.
Head on over to the original post to see what I had to say in response.
