  1. this was an interesting talk. it's always interesting to see how many attendees show up and the map poll, where we got to see where people were from, indicated the largest attendance from N America with others coming in from england & asia. freedman is interesting but a but halting in his delivery [he himself said the multitasking was challenging]. this speaks to the difference when presenting using web conferencing. it's hard to keep your thoughts clear when pariticipant notes are whizzing by and technology glitches distract. that said elluminate worked well with minor audio skips.
