inGenius! (yes, a title I have to live up to)
It's a great event--and an honor to be invited to speak. Each speaker is allowed five minutes of time. Five minutes. For a professor, that's going to require a great deal of practice, because I can take five minutes making the point that prefaces the point leading up to my main point.
So I'm practicing. I'm going to cut extraneous stuff. I'm going to be concise, witty, profound, and energetic. (The energetic I can actually promise.)
The good news is that I have not only cool things to say, but gorgeous pictures of Maybelle to accompany what I'm saying. And I will even show a 44 second clip from Wrath of Khan. That alone is reason to attend this event.
Here's the site where you can see everyone who's presenting. Don't y'all think it's a little unfair that I'm presenting right after Quentin Baxter plays? Yes, it is. Maybe I can pretend that he's warming the audience up for me.
