Colorado holiday- Part 2

Wednesday was an intense morning! To explain, part of the evening sessions at the Java Posse Round Up are five minute lightning talks by anyone who cares to sign up to talk about anything- literally anything from 'How to shave' (by Sean!) to 'How an engine works', and obviously lots of geeky ones too. So the boys signed the girls up to do one called 'What the girls do while the boys are podcasting'. However... We decided to do an alternate version. First we had to learn how to use Keynote, which is a program similar to Powerpoint on the Mac, then dig out lots of incriminating photos of the guys and put together the presentation. It took us several hours but we had a lot of fun doing it.

In the afternoon Dick carried on geeking and Tracy and up went up to the ski resort to watch the end of day skiing.

That evening we sat through several other lightning talks and nervously waited for ours. We wore our 'I love my geek' t-shirts and managed to make everyone laugh. We even kept it well under the 5 minutes.

Here's a few more pictures of our skiing fun:
