Dear Dad, please accept my sincere congratulations on your IEEE award! Well-done! Keep up the good job:) … By the way, this is post # 113, which is a good sign, I guess – I’ll bet you know why :)))
I have recently discovered two rare musical talents – Jeff Russo and Ramin Djawadi. Great composers!

One of the greatest, if not the greatest…
Piles of snow beneath my boots
chilly winds blowing everywhere
snow keeps mounting on the posts
on the windows and on the roads
hot and rich,
chicken and corn
coming back from all the work
this is what I look for
the warm chestnuts,
the cracking fire
this is my winter warmth
Brought to my attention by Alexander Shelkovnikov’s post on LinkedIn, the topic covers so much more… Enjoy!
A perennial dilemma of sorts happens when you’re choosing between Presentations’ Handouts and PowerPoint Presentations. Especially at the conferences.
Handouts might be easier to handle – literally – once you’ve printed them out.
On the other hand, nothing can beat the elegance of a silver screen well-crafted slides.
What I call here Takahashi-Lessig method, is actually two separate methods, called Takahashi method and Lessig method. Why do I kind of “blend” them? Because the idea behind the both is similar – do not overburden your slides. It’s not even a “one idea per slide” approach, rather, it’s one or two word(s). And a (very) large font size.
Both Masayoshi Takahashi and Lawrence Lessig techniques convey the same message of “less is more.”
But not even fanciest infographics can substitute for the person giving a speech. Because words and figures would mean little without the presenter’s charisma, his or her ability to persuade, convince, and, eventually, win over an audience.
Example? A really good one: Dick Clarence Hardt talk on Identity 2.0
