I have slides: how do I present them? I’ve got Google Slides and/or PDF.

I can stretch to 10 minutes easily if you want :smiley:

Heh! Re timing, we’re going to be strict about the 5 minutes - to leave space for those who feel spontaneously moved to share.

We’re checking on slides, as the platform we are using is in constant development. If you will not be able to share, we can do for you, and you just ask us to move forward. (Or we can set on Pecha Kucha style “autoplay”…!)

If at all possible could I go first or close to first? Not sure what I’ll have to share but for now just my pasty face :slight_smile:

Hi Janet. I’ve responded to James who messaged me about doing a talk: yes I can speak about my trash-picked TV experiences tomorrow evening. I’ve registered for FixFest. Does the technology work OK with Linux and Android tablets? Thanks.

Great to hear @Tony_Brown! We’ll add you to the line-up. I think it’s best to test out your set-up today. @james and I will be in touch about that.
