If you had 5 minutes on stage what would you say? What if you only got 20 slides and they rotated automatically after 15 seconds?
Around the world geeks have been putting together Ignite nights to enlighten us – quickly.
Personal One-Way Time Travel
Sara Q. Thompson
Librarian of the computer variety, teaching workshops on research, productivity, online workflows, and getting the most out of your everyday apps. My husband and I have moved around a lot, but hope to make 97701 our last zipcode. I ask questions and point out the obvious on twitter as @esquetee.
It's not the secret to building H. G. Wells' machine, but it is a piece of advice coming from more and more happiness and creativity experts: keep a journal.
A journal doesn't have to be a paper notebook with "Keep out!" written on the cover that you hide from your siblings. It can be your own personal time capsule, storing memories and questions for your future self to find. It can be a way of sending the stress of today to a point in the future when the present issues have been resolved. It can mean reminding your future self where you hid the holiday presents. In some ways, many of us do this already with schedules, to-do lists, and sticky notes on our desks. We use these tools to speak to another version of ourselves, sending our ideas ahead like a relay. I will share some ideas for creating these messages to the future - in both techie and traditional ways.
