I'm really happy to be involved in a new JISC project here at the University of Reading, called Digitally Ready. We've got the first programme meeting coming up soon, and the programme managers at JISC want an 'elevator pitch', which should be 'creative' and 'definitely no powerpoint'.
That's a challenge for a Comp Sci Engineery type. No Powerpoint? What can these people be thinking? ;-)
I spend too much of my life trying not to humiliate myself. OK, actually that's a lie - most of the time I fail to take it into account. But on this occasion, as I almost seem to be deliberately trying to embarrass myself, I thought I would share a preview of my elevator pitch for the digital literacies project.
I'm relatively happy with the lyrics. Generally, I would say I prefer to sing... but this seemed a bit clearer, and I originally thought of this as a 'beat poem'.
So, here it is - lean back, and enjoy the smooooth stylings (heh). Send me your comments on Twitter. I can always block you if you really hurt my feelings ;-)
(Oh and I will post the lyrics after the meeting)
(and, another Oh... it is in wma, as it was created in MS SongSmith. If your OS can't handle that, count yourself lucky)
PS COTS = Commerical Off The Shelf packages
PPS yes I do say 'the twitter' - I was being ironic, me being an old fogey, an' all.
