NotCon NotPad

So here are the thoughts so far for presentations I could do at NotCon. Piers kindly tried to shift my powerpoint block, but I seem to currently have rebelled against most of what he suggested. And the one tempting idea he suggest I know I'm unlikely to be allowed to do by my current employers.

There's still something to be got out of my old crusade around 'New Media for the stupid' - but I'm not sure if that's going to be mistaken for a usability talk and leave people disappointed. And I'm also not sure I'm ready or this would be the appropriate forum.

And yes, one day I'd like to work for the BBC again, and I know that if I started on 'a critique of the beeb's internal new media structure' I wouldn't be able to stop. To whit, I've already had to rewrite what was in the quotes because it had too much swearing in.

The sad thing is, I'm probably up to doing a full half-hour on any of these. Or one that fits a whole load of them together. And it would probalby be relatively witty, interesting and inspiring. I just don't know if I can be arsed.

What about 'New Media for the Terminally Uninspired'. I'd go to that presentation. In fact, I'd be a guinea pig for it. :-)

Oh, and in that penultimate paragraph, in relation to new media within, um, well, you know - I noticed that you used the word 'structure'. Hmm. Structure implies, well, er, structure. Unless you know something that I haven't noticed recently. :-)

I could really do with "Time management for the slightly crap". So many ideas that I can't decide which ones to work on.

I'm still wavering about doing a rehash of life hacks or something different. I probably need to be forced to do the something different, so if you do the time management piece, i will be forced to do more work. Which would be good.

(And I can steal your ideas for lifehacks, hooray!)

Well, we should probably compare notes at least. Don't want to bore the tits off people who went to EtCon!

All the ideas are fantastic. I could really do with something on White Collar Crime - An Introduction, and How To Get Away With Constructive Dismissal.

I'll take "Shit I'm a Manager" for 50 minutes please
