Me on Video  
Few of you will care about the topic (replacing your legacy Java code with Ruby using JRuby). But if you want to see me speaking on video, or just an unflattering initial picture of me to start the video, you can click below.

Replacing Java Incrementally Using JRuby, a talk by me

I apparently talk like xarnix. This comes as a surprise to me, though not an unpleasant one. Also, it's clear that I need more practice doing presenting if I want to get genuinely good at it.

I could have told you that you talk like xarnix.

I can't watch the video at school, but I will make sure to show it to Kenneth when he gets home tonight.

you seem near ready to burst into song...

and what a pleasing voice.
no wonder the grrls all love you!

don't be too hard on your presentation skills.
public speaking a difficult gig.

i (who used to do stand-up comedy) think you did very well.

Yeah. I decided the second time I watched it that I did okay.

I really like this stuff - perhaps that's why I seem ready to burst into song :-)

I could still stand to improve if I'm going to do it more often.

i would opine that most people tend to over-estimate how good they need to be when pubic speeching.

all you really need to do is:
1 - provide something of value.
2 - be understandable.

#1 captures their attention.
#2 keeps their attention.

anything beyond is butter on the bread.
