A good day yesterday. We're busy working on a thing for our panel but we found the time to go and see Clay Shirky speak. He was very good for lots of reasons but it was noticeable that he was better at the art of speaking than many others here.
He spoke loudly and clearly, he had actual jokes with actual punchlines and he had a well researched arguement. All good. But as well as that he very clearly sign posted his talk. Upfront he told us the three parts his talk consisted of and then he mentioned each chapter when he reached that point in the talk. So you always knew where you were. Superb.
And he stood up. Must remember that for my panel.
