I thought I would reflect upon the conference I attended last night. I suppose I am a tad bit jaded by voice chats these days. It turns out that the conference was a typing only event. I thought the author was fine, but the host was using evaluation software, and everyone had to keep putting in text to keep in the room. I found that distracting as was the use of a wide variety of fonts and colors. I have to say that all of that made it very distracting for some one with ADD. I will say that the author they interviewed was interesting, but after an hour or so of the chat room. They are supposed to be posing the chat logs, so maybe I will scan that later and be able to weed out the extraneous parts.
Now I have a goal, find some online chat software that focuses on voice, and that isn’t too annoying to use. If you have some suggestions, please post them in the comments.
One thought on “Reflections on a Conference.”
One: define ‘protocols’ somewhere. . . I understand the word, I don’t get it as a ‘fetish’ 😛 Two: you have ADD? Three: the fire trick is spiffy (on the author’s page), however, not very impressive. I have a professional magician among the rank of ex’s, he did that kind of stuff all the time 😛
I’m going to browse that page at some point, but have to say – the page colors are very distracting and too garish to be dealing with at 11:19 at night.
