One thing off my list

I don't have a bucket list. Nothing that is documented at least. But yes there are a few things I want to do before I kick the bucket. One of the things on that list as I remember saying it to a friend was 'To give a good talk in front of an intelligent audience'. Last week I had the opportunity to do just that. It was a big event open for anyone to attend and it went ok. 'Ok' being not too good not too bad. The turn out was poor plus mine being the last talk people were losing interest, I had to rush through the presentation and hurry up. I hadn't really volunteered to do this and I hadn't done any of the hard work. It was a good opportunity that had come by, I just took it up.

Technically though, it was a good talk and even if there were very few people who attended I'd like to believe they were intelligent. So thats one thing off my list. Given the kind of inactivity this year has seen this also gives me something to blog about. So there.
