| Napkin teleseminar with Seth Godin, Anil Dash, and Rich Sloan -- now this is going to be fun! »
Thanks to the interest and generosity of the folks at Google, it was my turn last week to head down to the Googleplex and talk about solving problems with pictures.
If you can't see the video, click here.It was a lot of fun to talk with such an engaged crowd. In his wonderful book Presentation Zen, Garr Reynolds talks about the critical need for a speaker to get a feel for his or her audience. Since I've done a fair amount of work with Microsoft lately, it was fascinating to compare the difference in audience responses between these two out-for-blood competitors.Quick takeaways: the Google crowd is much younger than you see at Microsoft up in Redmond, and the whole place feels infinitely more like a college campus. My favorite thing? The huge whiteboards everywhere... and the crazy beautiful Google Earth mashups on display in the lobby.

Did you know that our Lord Jesus Christ imprinted His face on a napkin and left this napkin on earth?
The first result on google images to the word "acheiropoietos" is how Jesus' Face looked like before crucifixion

Is Google's announcement it will stop censoring the internet in China and possibly pull out a marketing ploy?
Or do you think Google has good intentions or a bit of both?
Keep in mind, Google does not make much money in China and this kind of publicity will probably increase revenue better than regular Chinese annual revenues for the company.

Ironically I got a review copy of your book
from your publisher,
read it in time for my talk at IABC last week - where I rec'd it
then an audience member (Ellen of Cognac in the UK) came up and told me about her firm's approach to drawing the "big picture" to explain things in under ten minutes
And (continuing synchronicity) I was coaching two work teams at google on ways to communicate-to-connect - and there was ubiquitous you (Dan) speaking at google.
So today I wrote about you and the growth of the visual thinking field at http://www.movingfrommetowe.com/2008/06/29/%E2%80%9Ceven-you-can-draw-it-so-they-quickly-understand-kare%E2%80%9D/
BTW, David Sibbet was leading Coro when I was a Fellow there

I could predict a lot of what you were about to say in the talk. But that's because I've watched your previous talks and was familiar with the concepts.
