I just gave a talk about tiny robots at the TEDx Front Range event. Excitement! Bright lights! As I began, my slides didn’t appear. There was confusion, audience banter. The AV guy was giving me one of these. So I proceeded, waved my arms around a lot, and talked for ten minutes about how I think tiny robots are going to help our kids become smarter than we are.
I won’t lie: I prepared to give this presentation with a lot of imagery, and when it all of a sudden didn’t appear, I got stressed. Spontaneous challenge! But everything was fine: tiny robots speak for themselves. For those of you who were there, I’m sorry the images didn’t pop up; the talk would have been better if they had.
