If you happen to be in the Osaka area (which I realize is not many of you), I'd love to see you at my presentations in the Apple Store February 9 (and again on February 25). They both start at 7:00pm, and are free, of course. The presentations are called "How to Present Naked (with slides)". The presentations are in English. Below you can see two posters for the events in the form of smaller jpegs. The black one below (left) is the large poster that appears at the entrance of the Apple store. The other poster (right) is one I made myself in iWork (Pages) in just a few minutes. This poster was printed and placed around campus. I often do presentations in Apple Stores in Japan (Tokyo, Nagoya, etc.). Perhaps this summer I'll do some Apple Store presentations in other parts of the world as well. It would be great to meet some of you at an Apple Store in New York or London or Toronto, etc. in future.
The February 9 presentation had a very good feeling about it. Great audience. The audience was a good mix of business people, designers, professors, and college students from all over the world. We should have recorded it. We stayed nearly an hour answering questions and greeting people before finally heading to the local pub for a pint on the way home. One PZ reader even came all the way from Tokyo (about three hours by expensive bullet train) just for the presentation — thanks Jeonghoon!
There is no video but you can see pics from the presentation here, and you can get the gist of the talk from this 5-page handout (750k pdf). Software developer Hiroyuki Shinohara gave his thoughts on the presentation on his blog (in Japanese). There were no chairs available when he arrived so Hiroyuki graciously agreed to take a seat on the floor near the front. Quite cozy; all we needed was a fireplace.
Hope to meet many more PZ readers at my next public talk held at the Apple Store February 25 (Sun) at 7:00pm. See you then!
