Slideshare's new Zipcast feature nudged me to experiment with giving more online presentations externally. I regularly give presentations inside IBM using our Lotus Live Meetings service. Because of the usage charges, though, I haven't gotten around to offering many externally-available presentations. I accept invitations to speak, but I tend not to organize things myself.
I think that's worth experimenting with. Not only are web conferences a good way to get ideas out to more people, they're also a great way for me to learn from the questions and answers people have. I'm going to organize weekly presentations, taking advantage of Zipcast's beta and seeing whether this is something worth investing in going forward.
Why come when you can get the content from my blog or posted presentations?
- Get extra energy from hearing and seeing me talk about things I'm excited about
- Ask questions and share your thoughts in the text chat
- Connect and help me and others learn
Here are the presentations I'm thinking of doing. They'll be every Saturday in March, 12 noon - 1 PM Eastern Time, and I'll see if I can hack a way to record and sharing the presentations. Feel free to share these events with others!
