Come out tomorrow night (2011.02.10; doors 1900, show 2000) to watch me give an Ignite presentation – finally – on why computers cannot read this sign:

Garden Gate restaurant neon sign with horizontal and vertical text

Spoiler alert for catchphrase of the evening: “Mongolian cheesemonger.”

UPDATE (2011.02.11) The star of the show was clearly Cassie McDaniel, who achieved the impossible: An unflustered, unhurried, measured delivery. Her custom-made slides, derived from her A List Apart article, were lovely and showed just the right amount of information to be understood at a glance (necessary since we’re there to listen). Surely this is how it’s done.

Me? I was fine. She was better.
