I wanted to try and post something yesterday about the presentation after it was done, but we had plans to see Dave Matthews last night and didn’t get home until late, so I wasn’t on-line.
It went pretty well. The immediate feedback was pretty positive, but of course, the folks who had feedback for me were the handful of people who really learned how to use Google Reader and “got” the power of RSS feeds for the first time. I think there may have also been a couple of folks who got lost and/or bored during the presentation, but I think that was bound to happen somewhat. There was a broad range of technology backgrounds in the room, from folks who have been working in the legal industry for years and are still learning the tech side of things, to folks who were the Sharepoint Admins for their organizations and obviously knew a lot of what I was covering already.
Still, at the end of the day, I got a couple of people interested in subscribing to RSS feeds who had been confused about the concept before, so I feel like I’ve done my duty as an evangelist for the cause.
Like I always say about this site, I’m happy anytime someone comes and learns something from what I have to say, so I’m happy about the presentation. We’ll see if I get the opportunity to do something similar with our staff/attorneys, as we encourage more RSS use in the office. I think it’s a fun thing to talk about.
