Sometimes the muse hits (for better or worse) and creative passions take me a bit too far.¬† Here’s a couple examples for your amusement:

During a LinkedIn discussion on attending events inworld, I went off about folks who merely replicate a PowerPoint presentation, and not utilize all that a virtual world can provide:

For informational presentations, I want bar graphs that spring out of the ground like flowers so my group can walk amongst them. I want line charts that pierce the clouds. I want to have to run for cover from bullet points. I want live data streamed in and doing battle over the audience. I want to sail over oceans of functional requirements using the winds of change, setting course by the stars of milestones…

Edward Tufte would probably faint…

The Corvallis Social Media Brigade was coming up with medals for their various members and missions.¬† I think it’s a great idea, although a bit militaristic for me. I proposed¬† a “Cannon Fodder” award in Twitter, and what-do-you-know, Loyan made one up! Now the question was asked whom to award it to, my over excited response-

For the un-RT’ed; who w/out regard, suffer frm both authority & community alike 2 bring SocMed 2 an uncaring public. Srsly.

Modern Tech, so many opportunities to wear your passions on your sleeve..
