Thoughts on my SCaLE Talk

It went well. This one was actually harder than other talks I’ve given, because it feels awkward to talk about myself. That was why it ran short. I intended to let the attendees go ten minutes early, not twenty.

Lessons learned for next time: Attach Impress to a key combination, so that I don’t have to struggle to find the main menu on the big screen. Also, turn the screen saver off. The title slide advertises the talk, and let’s people know they’re in the right room. Don’t cover it up.

  1. Hi I saw your SCaLE talk and thought it was great–honest and intense. Your project is very interesting; I even use swapoff “manually” surprisingly often and always wonder about it. I hope you give another talk next year.
