Presentations and related materials.


original presentation

First presented and discussed interactively 2008-06-15 at BarCampSeattle day 2 (see PastEvents)




hero vs superhero

In the session we discussed several key components to becoming/being a hero:

And how these are all different for a hero vs a superhero.
