The BLUG Ubuntu Meeting - Decompression
So my gimmick was that I walked my fiancee through the whole thing, I was supposed to never touch the keyboard and mouse, but I did once :-(, though I don't think my lapse of integrity really affected the overall impact of the presentation.
It was a successful meeting, indeed, and my presentation went off without a hitch. 8 people showed up, and three were family of mine, but I think I succesfully convinced most of the people there that Ubuntu is good.
There was one person who showed up who I'd never met before that kept me on track by asking lots of appropriate questions. It would have been great to have more questions, though, cause I missed a few things.
I missed some of the things on my outline--which sucks--and I can't believe I lost my composure (and resolve not to grab the keyboard or mouse) over the brightness and contrast levels in MPlayer. That said, it was a resounding success even considering how few people actually benefitted from it. I'll be an optimist and say that it contributed to the intimacy of the room.
I did tape it, though, and now I have to wonder what the best way of sharing this over the internet is, so that maybe it can benefit more people out there.
Would there be an audience for something like this?
