Really the aughts were my days at the podium,
especially the years 2004–2008, right
before the crash, sure, but also right before YouTube! This
irony was marked by camera failure for my IxDA keynote in
2008, a talk on walking, and one of my all time favorite events.
Since then I really am a thing of the past on the speaking
circuit. I do not Tweet. No Facebook. Thus ever fewer calls. And
would you miss flying, as it has come to be? Saving some carbon
here. Still I would be glad to contribute a talk wherever
appropriate, and I am generally willing to escape our new polar
vortex Great Lakes winters...
