Last week I gave a talk at an NOiV event (NOiV is the Dutch government agency created to oversee the motion to prefer Free Software in government procurement) and today the speakers got back the evaluation results. I'm happy to have gotten good marks (7.5 out of 10) and to have had "Adriaan's enthusiasm for Open Source" named explicitly by two different respondents as a cool thing about the event.
Now I need to change my style for any speaking I may be doing at GCDS. I've promised to bring the traditional (?) speaker-motivation instruments for Akademy, and I'll need to lay off the buzzwords a little.
