Go over 5 minutes during the 5 Minutes of Fame at the NMC 2006 Summer Conference, and you shall be gonged.
What a blast- today at the NMC 2006 Summer Conference included the Five Minutes of Fame, where 10 presenters showed off their cool technical projects. But rather than the full on droning 50 minute PowerPointless Lectures, the 5MoF limits them to… 5 minutes, so we compressed 10 incredible projects presented in less than an hour. It is fast, fun, and wild.
I got to be the emcee and run back and forther between microphones to announce the presenters.
