Great event

It was a wonderful event tonight, despite a few audio problems.
Thought provoking, educational, I left with many new ideas.

I'd love to see more events like this around campus. I'll unfortunately be missing the gorilla girls.

Ugh. That was not good.

I appear to be the only person really disappointed by last night. The examples were dated, the analysis was dated and the lecture just left me bored. I thought it was condescending, lazy, contrived and completely lacking in any real insight. Also, to the organizers, it's probably best not to talk during the first 15 minutes of the lecture. Seriously ladies, that was out of line. I expect that behavior from 10 year olds in movie theaters not lectures.

And there's really no excuse for not testing all functionality before a presentation. The whole thing was amateur-ish at best.
