First Presentation

Well, our developer's Get-together on June 20, 2002 at the Ramada was a rousing success (after a fashion :) I was Worse and the audience was Better than I had thought ;) My 'Speaker's Notes', so carefully crafted, left my Cranium for greener pastures and my Tongue was tied for the first several slides, but I G r a d u a l l y got into it.

The Audience of over 20 was awesome - contrary to what I had Feared, nary a bored, sleepy or confused face in the place. Most of the folks there seemed to find it Interesting :)
