The Presentation Randomizer

Category: Fun, Presentation, The Ajax Experience

At our Ajax Experience keynote this year, Dion and I coded up a simple little program that buzzed at random intervals every 10-120 seconds. Whenever it buzzed, one of us had to stop talking and the other would have to pick up right where the other guy left off. It definitely kept things fresh.

Quite a few folks asked us to release the code. It’s quite trivial; check it out.

We used SoundManager2 to play the buzzer sound; the rest is straight-forward.

Hey, this is a neat idea for presenting. Reminds me of a tag-team Pecha Kucha. Do you happen to have a video online of how the presentation went?

Run and hide! Serif fonts! My eyes!

Otherwise, neat, and I can’t imagine it being used in a presentation. That must have been something. I echo esjay in request of video (or audio, even).
