In preparation for my talk, I trolled the #ConnectingThings website, watched every lecture, peeped some TED talks, sweated, cried, and ultimately stayed up the entire night before searching for what it was that I had to share. A process similar to the one used to write my thesis.
Ultimately, it was not nearly as terrifying as I'd built it up to be. I met a lot of interesting people and am looking forward to attending more lectures in the series! Also, I had to get a photo of the audience because they literally could have been models.
