Be Careful What you Wish For
It started out quite simply, with a tweet.
To which I could not help but reply:
Lea Pica struck back:
Challenge. Cautiously. Accepted. I nominate a reluctant @tgwilson for the challenge!
And so – it’s ON.
What is it?
Each contestant delivers a 5-slide PowerPoint deck they have not seen before.

Who keeps score?
What’s the prize?
Bragging rights and a copy of Jim Sterne’s Social Media Metrics book in Japanese.
Who can play?
The first five brave souls to tweet their willingness….

We’ve got ourselves a contender!!
That’s four – room for one more. James Cain, whom do you name?
But wait… what’s this?
While Mr Cain is still turning his hat around, @therustybear (None other than Russell McAthy) has thrown HIS hat into the ring:
And there you have it – a full complement of courageous contestants.
Lea, Tim, Jim, Russell and myself will prepare a 5 slide deck to be delivered sight-unseen by a randomly selected opponent.
On site, the audience will offer up five random topics sight-unseen that will be randomly assigned to the speakers. Yes, our contestants will have to present slides they have not seen to illustrate a topic they will not know of in advance.
At the end of five presentations, the audience will indicate their favorite through varying db levels of applause.
At the moment, the prizes stand at bragging rights, a copy of Jim Sterne’s Social Media Metrics book in Japanese and a bottle of Educated Guess Merlot:
Other prizes are likely to be added to this list by analysts known and unknown.
