Excited about Tomorrow (Even if today was a bit of a wash...)

Spent the whole day on errands. Found a place to print out photos for my mother in law at $0.17 each (with 300 of them), picked up firewire cables for the video camera, dumped the wedding video to DVD so that she can take that with her too. Bit of a bug-fix for an infrequent client in there somewhere too.

In the middle somewhere there I spent a few minutes meditating on the presentation tomorrow. Intention, clarity in design through clarity in purpose, making the challenges of a situation visible through the design, the indirection of the solution as a negative image of a problem, and what is the thing that the OLPC makes visible (hint, it's big, bigger even than education, though that's the vehicle), they're all whirling past and I want to rewrite the whole presentation... but that's not going to happen... nowhere near enough time.

Still, inside I'm bouncing up and down with the ideas and I really want to share them tomorrow. However, today has evaporated and tomorrow I have two conferences to attend, so I need to get to sleep.

    That sounds really interesting. To bad I cannot attend. Will you be posting your slides and/or notes?

    I believe they are intending to post a video recording of the whole presentation. I'll put my slides up in the normal place (http://www.vrplumber.com/olpc/presentations) when I get the chance (likely tomorrow).
