Presentation Interruptus
Presentation Interruptus
available on my flickr

Here at the New Media Consortium (NMC) Directors meeting in Austin, I was doing a reprise of the 5 Minutes of Fame session at EDUCAUSE ELI Conference. This was supposedly highlighting the NMC Horizon Report section on "Phones in Their Pocket" — the report suggesting cell phone technology is in the 2-3 year horizon for becoming more broadly used in education.

Less a report than being a bit goofy, I arrange for my presentation to be interrupted by a cell phone call (has thay ever happened to anyone else?) – where I am trying to handle a crashed server situation with someone at the other end– who turns out to have the name "Mom".

The transcript and a link to some of the background flickr photo slide shows are available in the back blog.

Thanks to Barbara Truman for sharing the photo… I usually try to position myself behind the camera rather in front, so thanks again!

Mom calls again in the middle of a presentation!

An early 90s builder of the web and blogging Alan Levine barks at on web storytelling (#ds106 #4life), photography, bending WordPress, and serendipity in the infinite internet river. He thinks it's weird to write about himself in the third person.
