  • Couple of notes

    by Richard Richter,

    I'm interested in Geb, tried it already and will finish the presentation hoping to learn something new (very likely). However:
    - presenting does not engage enough, seems to be read mostly (either bullets directly, or some prepared notes), this definitely should be relaxed more if possible (I know it's easier said than done)
    - presenters generally should not wear anything around their mics, badge down for the time of presentation would help with constant noise (clothes are OK of course :-))
    - little slower speech would help too, some things are kinda garbled this way

    Of course, keep it up.
