Pardon The "App" Interruption

I had a great time last Friday presenting with Barbara Fullerton from Morningstar, and Scott Riggins from Houston-based Social Mobility at the SLA Texas annual meeting held at the University of Houston. We had a great time going over some new – and some not so new – apps and mobile devices called "Pardon The 'App' Interruption."

The audience got a chance to participate by holding up cards with "Like", "Fail" or "Meh!" to show what they thought of the product we were discussing. It made for an enjoyable interaction with the audience (and caused us to run over our alloted time… no big surprise there!) I have to give some love to Google Docs for allowing the three of us to work on a presentation from three different locations (and for somehow keeping all of the formatting from becoming garbled as I went in and out of PowerPoint to G-Docs and vice-versa.)

Here's the Google Docs version… enjoy!!

Cool idea and cool slidedeck. I would love to know how they voted. Any chance of that?

Of course… the "Liked" everything!!

There was some mixed reception on the new tablets that were coming out… the normal "I <3 Apple" vs. "I <3 Android" vs. "I 'Meh!' Everything"!

The big (unanswered) question was how exactly do these apps help me in my providing services to my customers… our default answer, of course was "It Depends!"
