Out of Rhythm
Last night we had "technical issues" at The Gathering. We lost the S-Video - RCA adaptor that runs from my laptop to our video switcher and so I could either show the slide show and have no access to my notes or have my notes but no slide show. So we hurriedly printed my notes, which was a royal pain in the butt. Here's the thing: as a speaker -- anything that throws you out of your rhythm is hard to recover from. I never felt last night that I was "in my groove" because I was rapidly flipping pages to find my notes and flip my slides, etc. FRUSTRATING!!! Irony (maybe not irony, but something) : I found the cable this morning -- lying underneath the extra chair in my office. GRRRR.
