Over the past 24, I spent a LOT of time with Audacity editing the um’s and uh’s out of the NUI webcast. (Adderall really messes with my articulacy.) We post at NUInet.com tomorrow, barring unforseen post-production mishaps. Like, maybe my ability to distinguish what makes sense from what doesn’t became desensitized from long bouts of editing.
Creating the slideware was a lot of fun. Greg Mancusi-Ungaro and I bounced ideas back and forth several times, and we’re both pleased with the end result. (I haven’t heard Greg’s words on the final audio for it.)
One thing we tried to do differently from past NUI events was to offer as many different formats as possible. So you can watch online, or download and take it to go. We also posted an Acrobat file with accompanying MP3’s. I think gave Brent Sharp and the rest of the NUI team a minor throw. Deviation from the established method always creates some uncertainty. I’m hoping that listeners will appreciate it, though, and I’d love to hear feedback one way or the other.
