  • Unfortunately an exotic talk for exotic people

    by Dirk Detering,

    I am sorry to say that this guy lost me after 10 mins and after even 5 mins more of humble patience I stopped and only ff-ed through the rest.
    Much too verbose bulletpoint slides right from the beginning (shall I read or shall I listen?), no fluent speech (so better read?), more than 5 mins talk about what he will talk about.
    What a pity for what could have been an interesting story to tell.
