My Talk on Software Quality Available OnlineTo clarify the title, if you are on the Microsoft corporate network, then you can view the recorded version of my talk "Parallels Between Environmentalism and Software Quality". Go to the mylearning site, then search for it (the word "Parallels" will work). Then click View (from my machine I have to click several different "view" buttons) and it will bring it up. It's 42 minutes long.
I forced myself to watch it to evaluate how I performed as a presenter. It went pretty well; I mumbled a few sentences and missed a few minor point I wanted to mention, but succeeded in delivering the talk I wanted. One thing I noticed is that I was using a remote clicker for the Powerpoint and without realizing it I was making an exaggerated gesture each time I clicked--as in "I will now once again perform my magic wireless clicking trick for your viewing pleasure!" I need to tone that down and make it as undetectable as possible. In fact I was having a discussion recently with a few people about making a wireless clicker that was completely hidden (in your shoe, or on your fingertips), but nobody seemed to think it was a great idea. Then again they laughed at what's-his-face when he invented that really useful thingie.
