Yesterday was Convocation Day for the college. Exams are over and all but the summer students are now scattered to the winds. Just us few peons left to organize for next year. Next thing on the agenda is a brain-storming meeting. Basically, what that means is that I get to show up with a clipboard and a list of work to delegate.
Actually, a clipboard and a computer would work better. Here’s a question for those of you who get around. How do you project a computer screen onto a wall? I’ve seen this in photographs of genealogy conferences. There’s 400 people sitting in an auditorium and the person down at the podium is teaching what’s on his/her computer by having it enlarged on a wall behind their head. We have computers, we have walls, we have bedsheets. What else do we need? Overhead projector – any particular kind? The last time I was in a room with a projector I was a teenager watching a home-made slideshow. VGA-DVI adapter? Will this work from a laptop? Any special instructions?
