A presentation I gave at a 'notworking' event called Glug in London. It was a short 5-10 minute presentation given in a pub to drunk designers and digital folks mainly. It's not the smartest thing I've ever done, but I thought I'd share it nonetheless.

It's missing lots of video clips and things which obviously made it much much better than it is now. Honestly.
