My YouTube Debut

Brian Jepson corralled me at the bar after my talk last night at the Providence Geeks dinner for a quick three minute video interview recorded off his MacBook.

My actual talk went well. I wrote down about 40 topics ("Zope 3," "Calendars," "Hiring," "The Shuttleworth Foundation," etc) on 11"x14" cards and let the early arrivals pick out 20 or so that I'd actually talk about. I arranged them in a reasonable order and recruited someone to hold up the cards to lead me along. Given the particular combination of circumstances, it was an effective method.
