My First Prezi

Today I gave my first Prezi.com presentation, at the Workshop for Young French Scientists organized at USC by the Office for Science and Technology of the French Embassy in the US. I was introduced to this new presentation tool at the recent ACM Creativity & Cognition Conference. The zooming presentation model seems very promising, although I still have a lot to learn to fully utilize the medium. The non-powerpointness of the presentation was refreshing and, I believe, appreciated.

Bien Faire et Laisser Braire

"Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self." -- Cyril Connolly

Or like my mother liked to say: "Bien faire et laisser braire" (Do good and let (them) bray).
