tedxBasqueCountry iTypeFastR - type faster and with less typos on your iPhone How to Present While People are Twittering | Pistachio This is a guest post from esteemed presentations and speaking expert Olivia Mitchell. People used to whisper to each other or pass hand-scribbled notes during presentations. Now these notes are going digital on Twitter or via conference-provided chat rooms. Up until now, this back-channel has been mainly confined to the Internet industry and technology conferences. However, a survey of leadership conferences from Weber Shandwick shows that there is a significant increase in blogging and twittering at conferences. So the next time you present at a conference, instead of being confronted by a sea of faces looking at you, you may be phased by a sea of heads looking down at their laptops.

As a presenter, you might be worried that the back-channel will be distracting. Rachel Happe adds: 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. What about the speaker?
Entrepreneurs: Beware of Vanity Metrics - The Conversation - Har by Eric Ries | 12:10 PM February 8, 2010 In previous posts, we discussed the common challenges that entrepreneurs face — from those in the garage to innovators inside large companies. In order to tell if we’re making progress, we turned our attention from the outputs of models — from things like gross revenues and profits — to the inputs, insisting that the path to successful innovation is to prove the viability of the concept in micro-scale. The idea is simple. But this leaves a very difficult problem still to be solved: How do we know that these changes are what actually effect change in the metrics that we’re observing? This is the curse of vanity metrics, numbers which look good on paper but aren’t action oriented: website hits, message volume, or “billions and billions served.” Consider a scenario where a team makes a product change, and the very next month page views go up. To avoid falling into this trap, I recommend you follow the three A’s of metrics.
