I’m developing a new lightning talk using the concept of a medieval bestiary.
A bestiary is an illustrated compendium of beasts, popular in the middle ages. Bestiaries introduced people to real and fantastical creatures that they would never encounter.
This Lightning Talk will provide a bestiary of techcomm practitioners, many of which you WILL encounter in the course of your career. Join me for an enjoyable look at today’s techcomm beasts.
Attendees will enjoy seeing to which beasts they and their colleagues are most similar. Note that any resemblance to actual techcomm practitioners is purely coincidental. No actual techcomm practitioners will be harmed in the production of this lightning talk.
I’m planning on tieing medieval images to techcomm careers and/or individuals. What do you all think about that?
I’ll be presenting this Lightning Talk at the STC Summit 14 in Phoenix in May.
