Beyond the Blog – Not Ready For Prime Time (Yet)

It’s all my fault.

For the past week or two, Alan and I (OK, mostly Alan) have been labouring in obscurity constructing our presentation for next week’s ELI Annual Meeting. Though I’ve mostly been whining here about my talk at the library tonight, in a sense this one is more challenging. Judging from the conference schedule, it looks as if there will be some fairly savvy people in the audience. I’m glad Alan will be there.

Anyhow, I managed to accidentally give Leigh a sneak preview (I won’t go into how — too embarrassing). And the linkage has spread. Just want to make two points:

* We’re not done! We still have images to add, and a fair bit of content and navigation to add and edit. And we haven’t even started the audio.
* It was Alan who built those snazzy book covers.

I know there’s nothing stopping you from peeking. But I ask you to think of this presentation like a wrapped Christmas present — won’t it be more fun to open it on the big day?

Apologies to Alan for my loose mouse finger. I’ll be treating for the fish tacos.

  1. Sorry about that Brian. I’ve updated the post on my blog and disabled the link to the presentation. I’m very much looking forward to the finished product. I love the work you guys do. 😉

    Too funny.

    The Christmas present analogy sets me thinking about the idea of a sense of occasion. I won’t bog down this great comic moment with my ponderous ramblings just now, but I’d sure like to talk to you about this and, oh, everything else in San Diego. Counting the hours!

    Hi Darren – thanks for checking in. I think the horse has the left the barn, no reason for you to apologise. I’m the dumb one! BTW, like the work you’re doing as well, hope we meet sometime.

    Hi Gardner, as it happens last night I was mangling what you said to me about “expectation and sense of occasion”, talking about it with a friend. I was really struck by that, and hope we can talk about it more. See ya next week!
