Thesis; “If you really want toknow about the future, don’task a technologist, a scientist,a physicist. No! Don’t asksomebody who’s writing code.No, if you want to know whatsociety’s going to be like in 20years, ask a kindergartenteacher.” - Stoll
To capture his audienceStoll shows his truepersonality. He movesaround the stage as hespeaks.
He lets his audienceknow what he is thinkingby using hand gesturesand many facialexpressions.
Stoll actively explains histhinking. With story telling andpast reference.
Stoll engaged theaudience with his“hand notes.” Henoted the keypoints of thespeech.
Stoll preaches bothcommandments 8 and9. He obviously wasn’treading a script, butactively creating one.He also made theaudience laugh a lot.
While he followedthe commandmentspretty well he didbreak one. He sortof plugged his bookand made it knownhe has more thenone.
On a positivenote, he told awonderful storyof his youth.About how hebefriendedMoog.
He also spoke ofboth he failuresand hisachievements.When he spoke ofthese he kepteveryoneengaged.
I give Stoll a 4/5 indynamism, hesometimes gotjumbled in what hewanted to speakabout.
Stoll has taught meto be persuasive andshow all the energy Ihave on the topic Ichoose to present.He moves with hisspeech keeping theaudience interested inwhat he is doing.
How was my presentation?Overall I think hispresentation wasentertaining andinteresting. I don’t the itfollows Nancy Duarte’s orGarr Reynold’s rules tooclosely, however.
What’s the difference? Ken likes to stay on a given topic, and tends to stay in one spot for most of his talks.While Mr. Stoll likes to be active,almost bouncing around the stage.He is a little scatter-brained attimes.
Cedits I used snapshots from the TED talk for the slides. I felt that is where I could find nicer pictures of Stoll.http://www.ted.com/talks/clifford_stoll_on_eve rything.html
