Goal accomplished

Back in December I talked about goals for 2006. One was accomplished this week by hearing Malcolm Gladwell speak at BbWorld 2006. He did 45 minutes without notes or glaring mistakes. If I could do that maybe I could charge a similar speaking fee (see the third paragraph of this interesting article from FastCompany), but I doubt that Universal and Warner Brothers would bid on movie rights to my story, or that Leo D would star :)

It looks like I will have to wait for either EDUCAUSE or the Campus of the Future conference to complete my goal of hearing Thomas Friedman. Or, if I had more money than time, I could've skipped BbWorld, EDUCAUSE, and Campus of the Future to see them simultaneously in Connecticut next month :)
