What doesn’t totally confuse you makes you stronger…

20120318-145022.jpgas in… making your brain learn new things is a good thing.  My most recent venture is to finally learn how to put together a presentation in the post 35mm slide era.  This does truly make me a relic from another time.

Most of the work I did prior to 2004 is still in slide form and I have to give a power point presentation, for the upcoming Creative Capital workshop…so that means scanning a bunch of images into digital files.

“Why this is child’s play”, you say.  Indeed, my kid was learning how to do this in school.  But, unfortunately, the last time I was a visiting artist/public speaker, they still gave you the option of slides. Now of course, projectors aren’t even being made anymore.

So, I spent an hour or so scanning some older images at the local university library.  A mere drop in the bucket considering the three drawers full that will need my attention later at some point.

What’s your latest brain challenge?

(Instead of powerpoint, I’m going with Keynote, the Mac application that seems to get more votes for being visually elegant and easier to deal with- so far I agree)
