PowerPoint and Spotty WiFi are Evil

PowerPoint is evil. It's crashing so much that it's taking me twice as long to finish my visual aids for iBlog2 -- and I'm not even trying to do anything fancy.

I'd use Thumbstacks if I weren't warned that the wifi might be spotty. Heck, most restaurants in the Philippines think wifi is food.

Maybe that silly web-on-a-hard-drive idea will find a small market here after all.

I really enjoyed your discussion at i-blog though. Hehe. Purple cows. I'm not much of a sneezer though.

Glad you enjoyed! As for becoming a sneezer, signing your comments would be a good start. ;)

One body, two presentation tracks. Argh. Will you post your iBlog 2 presentation online?

Mike Abundo said...

I know what you mean, Manuel. I actually hopped between the two tracks.

Presentation notes coming soon. :)

Heeey, Mike. Good to meet you in the flesh yesterday. Of all the things you taught, "Chiclet overload", "purple cows", and "shishkebabs" stuck. Catch your presentations online soon?

Is wifi food? Hehe, been a couple of months since that entry. My recent experience? The Figaro GBelt 3 guys now know that wifi's something you serve on the side with coffee.:)

Somehow, my friends and I loved the catchphrases of the preseentation. With the entire "attention is precious" to "smoothening the spread" thing.

Anyway, you might be interested in your picture [unedited].

Yo Mike! Nice talk you had at iBlog2. Thanks!

Btw, where's your trackback? Can't find it...

Mike Abundo said...

@Maita: Chiclets, shishkabobs, purple cows... you're right. I'd better post presentation notes before people start thinking I talked about some weird recipe.

@Topnotcher: Catchphrases are the hyperlinks of the mind -- underlined pointers to broader concepts. Thanks for the pic!

@Mike: Blogger uses backlinks.

Mike Lopez said...

oh yes! i remember. backlinks they are. :D
