Tonight was the worst presentation I have given in years. My equipment didn’t work. We started twenty minutes late on loner equipment. I couldn’t do any of my examples. Embarrassing showing tonight. I hope to do way better next time. Can’t emphasize how nice it was to still hear positive comments from folks in the audience though even as I felt awful about it.
I do talks on security and have a horrible track record with social media because I don’t like social media but I guess I need to use it so people know I exist.
