As I mentioned in previous posts, delivering a Lightning Talk at the Business of Software conference was an amazing experience for me. It appeared to make a big impact on my peers who delivered talks as well.
At least that’s what Patrick McKenzie says … his winning talk is now up … take 7.5 minutes and just watch it. It’s great – very funny, and you’ll learn something, too.
Patrick is a hero of mine. Ever since I moved away from being a musician to being a professional nerd, I’ve wanted to make a technology business I could call mine AND fit into a balanced lifestyle AND do things MY way. For various reasons, I haven’t succeeded with all of that yet. Patrick has succeeded – and he’s left a trail of breadcrumbs for people like me who want to learn from his experiences.
On top of that, he’s just a really nice guy. Go watch his video now!
