Looks like the good folks at Duke University’s Center for Instructional Technology put my presentation “Fragmented Identities: A Domain of One’s Own” up on YouTube. Quite frankly, I was afraid to watch the video because I have fond memories of the talk, and on a partial viewing my fears were confirmed—-I was all over the place, a complete mess really. The one thing I do like about it, however, is just how vernacular my style is. It’s such a long way from the days of presenting my grad school papers, and while it make be dreadfully imprecise and off-the-cuff, I also feel like it is far more intimate and personal—just like so many of these technologies we are trying to think through.
The magic trick comes at the 11:30 mark, and my early discussion of Twitter is kind of fun, although the Twitter stream during my session never really took off. Anyway, here it is, another presentation experiment that was in many ways a failure, but at the same time an attempt.
