I went to a speech put on by one of the Microsoft toastmasters clubs about how to make technical points with PowerPoint. It wasn't very good. I expected to learn and be impressed. I didn't really learn and wasn't really impressed. This may have been exacerbated by the noob mistake of starting 10 minutes late and not using those 10 minutes to check the equipment and having to wait even longer when the clicker didn't work.

My exercise ball is interesting. I'm keeping it to ~half hour segments as instructed. Dunno if I like it yet.

And we played some Sons of Liberty in which we found that fake mustaches are the ultimate disguise. There's even one on the Liberty Bell now.


  1. Are you doing the exercise ball as office chair thing ? This may be relevant

  2. Thanks! Not as office chair... as a ~half-hour-at-a-time replacement for my desk chair at home, plus exercise ball. 'cause I read plenty of things saying "don't go sitting on one of those for 8 hours!" :)

  3. I'd really like to see an intelligent and critical summary of this research. I too have been trying to figure out how to sometimes use a standing desk.
