Demonstrating my awesome presentation skillz

Tomorrow, I'm presenting as part of the Celebration of Women in Science and Engineering at Carleton. It's going to be a really fun event showcasing some of our female students, faculty and staff. In fact, you can hear us talk about it on CBC Radio 1 sometime early tomorrow morning... I'm guessing around 6:20am, but I foolishly forgot to ask.

To give you a taste of my research talk, here's a couple of slides. But you'll have to come for the whole thing to learn about how to cause Facebook drama and call it science, or how I managed to fit a LOLcat into my professional research presentations.





I'm on to talk about my research at 2:30 Thursday (tomorrow!) in 5115HP. Or 11:30 if you want to see me be even more snarky regarding misconceptions and computer science.

In my experience, web duhsigners spend significant chunks of their time futzing with fonts, Having Concepts, gratuitously breaking functionality in the name of visual snazz, tuning and hardcoding column widths so that they'll break in translation or the moment somebody with a name a byte longer than theirs registers, and compulsively trying to get the last pixel just so. Not sure where they find time for everything.

Wish I could have made it!

I find too often people overlook security, or leave it down to "other people" to secure an application. Being realistic, the other person never shows up.

Hope it went well!
