But I can still type - I'm just back from the dentist and my entire face is frozen. Somebody called my cell but I didn't pick up since my tongue is a slab of meat right now.

Speaking of, well, speaking I found this site called Presentation Zen about the art of giving a speech. One thing I noticed at this technical conference I just attended is the increasingly sophisticated presentations, full of videos and animations. Usually I consider flying text and ornate slide transitions as distracting window-dressing but some of the technical presentations I saw with active 3-D graphs were edifying and instructive.

It's a far cry from the days when presenters could be identified by the stack of projector slides they were carrying.
