i love the CCCC's. i love that we are talking about delivery. i used to think i wasn't cool enough if i read a paper . . . something in the "live performance" concept that i wanted to activate. but i defaulted to reading because that's what we do, that's a convention. and the thing is -- it's work to shape a piece of writing-to-be-read in ways that *perform* rather than *lecture* . . . so i've found it challenging and rewarding to read papers. now, i use film also, to sort of ramp up the entertainment value of my work (i hope) and to demonstrate my own engagement w/ a problem/question.
