For some reason, I have an Urge. I want to get people to talk. Not just chat, but to give talks. It's nerve wracking at first, but a lot of fun. Moreover, I think it could help Netsoc. Our machines aren't doing anything, but that doesn't mean we couldn't be. I no longer hold any illusions of becoming a lecturer but I want to show people how to do things. I think it would make sense for people in Netsoc to share what we know with others, with no actual expectation for them to join our ranks of administrators.

I know we try to find people and groom them to be the tech-monkeys, but I just want to show cool and helpful stuff to people who may be interested. And I think it would help people overall. Overall, it would be a tiny glimmer of a pulse in a dying society.

There again, I probably only want to do this as a form of procrastination, to prevent work on study, projects or exams.

I really think that's a damned good idea.

I think it's a cool idea.

I also think it's false to view it as procrastination. Procrastination is a waste of time. This is something that someone else can learn from. Even organising a talk can be benefitial and important. Though it could impact study for exams, exams aren't the most important thing in the world.

Cool. out of curiosity, do you have any ideas that could be used in such a talk?

My main thing is to try and use things that we've actually used. So, if you think of anything that was majorly useful to you, let me know!
