Early morning at CUE
It’s 6:59 AM, and I’m already in the presentation hall for my 8:00 address on the new shape of information. I’ve done a good deal of cooking on this presentation to make it a little more story based. I hope that it goes over well.
There are some early morning disappointments. For some reason this very large hall is the only one without house speakers, and I’m doing a session later this morning on podcasting. The little computer speakers that they have are AMAZINGLY loud, but the quality is not the best. Also, somebody stole the lapel mic for the room yesterday, so they’ve given me a hand-held. I truly and passionately hate using a hand-held mic. They are trying valiantly to find another lapel mic, but I’ll make do.
What I always say, is that it’s good to get the disappointments over with early, so that there are non left for the actual presentation.
Wish me luck!
