New line-up for the next two weeks

There has been a change to the line-up for the next two weeks.  Your presentations have been postponed until the April 11 (FULLTIME) and April 12 (PART-TIME).  A full brief has been posted on Blackboard.  It is detailed.  The standard has been raised.  I now expect brilliance…

You will have to read the Cluetrain to get background to the presentation and to make sure you have made an accurate interpretation of the thesis. You don’t remember 1999 as you were all about 10 so do not assume it is today.  There are huge differences between 1999 and 2011.  Singularity approaches… it was not always so.

Also make sure you do some research into how Presentation Zen style presentation’s work. You can also look at slideshare you-suck-at-powerpoint for some pointers.   Next week you have a blogging workshop. As there is a guest lecturer – it is compulsory.
