The Zombie Home Page Chronicles - Part 5: Revenge of 2004


 

OK, this is a total inside joke that only people who attended the Great Keynote Revolt of 2009 will understand.

I was at the HighEdWeb 2009 conference in Milwaukee this week, and one of our keynote speakers (@notjared) gave a speech that dated from about 2004 and was poorly adapted to a highly technology savvy audience. Lacking a Twitter account (true), he was unaware of the vicious back channel that cut him no slack and granted no mercy. You can review a transcript of it here (starts at 11:59 AM), or read posts by people who weren't there here and here. And here's a balanced post from someone who was there.

At the very least, he gave me a way to save our heroes from the zombies... but he replaced them with something far, far worse.

ZOMGBBQWTF. You. Are. My. Hero.

In other words, I'm gonna let you finish, but you've got the best damned strip around. ;) So to speak.

Now I need a signed copy of this!

If you do, I'm totally gonna ask for your autograph.
