Trial by fire

‘Tis done. Andy and I delivered our banter to a room full of unsuspecting South by SouthWest attendees yesterday. You can look through the slides if you like.

I’m quite pleased with how it went. We got some laughs which was our main aim. Apart from dropping my bluetooth connection to Salling Clicker, everything went pretty smoothly.

Once the talk was over, I was able to relax a bit more and really let my hair down. The opening party by Frog Design was a heady mixture of live music, free beer, scantily clad dancing girls and sword swallowers… it was as if the dot com bubble never burst.

The festival is well underway now and I’m probably going to spend most of the time running around like a headless chicken trying to get to all the panels I want to see, which is a physical impossibility unless I clone myself.

Gotta run…
