I am going to be presenting tonight at Ignite Phoenix, the nerd prom of the Phoenix tech crowd.
I have to be at the venue in exactly 3 hours now.
My jitters abound.
More than that, I cannot say. I’ll share more when it’s all over. If nothing else, being part of an Ignite showcase is an original experience. It’s been about 8 years since I was on a stage, and even then I had lines to memorize.
Not so with Ignite. I have an idea of what I need to say, and slides to guide me along. But there is no hard script, nothing to memorize, and if I choke on something I have mere nanoseconds to recover.
If I ever agree to do something like this again, you have my permission to slap me. Whoever you are.
