• Call for Dork Shorts…

    Hey folks,  as I mentioned in the opening session, we’re going to do a round of dork shorts in the closing session.  Dork shorts are essentially a quick description/elevator pitch for a tool/project/etc – 5 minutes max (yes, we will time you kick you off “the stage” when the 5 minutes are up).  Even though you may have talked about your project/application/tool/site in a previous session, this doesn’t mean that you can’t do a dork short – there are lots of people who might not have heard you talk already.  So, for those who want to sign up for dork shorts, just comment on this post (with the subject of your short).  Remember, 5 minutes max!

    UPDATE: Ok, sorry….5 minutes is too long (I’ve been admonished by Beth).  2 minutes max!

    I’ll talk about the Neatline project out of the Scholars’ Lab! But five minutes? Dude, you need the keyboard cat to play us off after TWO. :)

    I would like to talk about the University of Waterloo’s new MA in eXperimental Digital Media (XDM) in our English department. It’s pretty cool and we’re trying to get the word out!
