Exported, Navigable Version of My C&W 2009 Presentation

MM Export ImageI mentioned in my last entry that I would make available the exported, portable, and navigable (no, not citable, though) of my presentation from this last week. It’s not all that user-friendly, actually, because readers have to use the scroll bars to move around the map, but I do like the layout, interactivity, and general polish possible with this software. It’s also totally customizable. You can use your own fills for map backgrounds and for top backgrounds. You can customize fills, manipulate fonts and sizes, adjust layout patterns, or borrow-modify-save existing templates. Here’s the file. It should open just fine in Acrobat Reader. Please let me know if you can’t open it.

Just for good measure, I wanted to see what it would look like if I exported as a PowerPoint. Although it’s incredibly boring in this exported state, it would l probably be a good place to start as you could manipulate each slide as you see fit for a more engaging presentation. Here’s that file, too.

I’m gonna decompress tomorrow, after a truly exhausting three weeks at DMAC and C&W. Sorta nest a little bit here in Louisville. I get to see my dog, Rilke, again. I get to mow the lawn (a jungle after three weeks). And I’ll probably be on the slaughtered end of a softball match tomorrow night. Regardless, the night will end with a drink with friends-not-seen for a while. And I’ll wake up fresh, ready to get back to work on the dissertation and other projects.

I’d love any feedback about your own experiences with different presentation software, or even MindManager. I’ll reply ASAP. Best…

  1. Trauman! So good to see you. I’m looking forward to checking out your presentation, but neither Lisa nor I could open the pdf version on our macs (in browser, Preview, or Acrobat Professional). The ppt worked though.

  2. Really? That sucks. It must be a Mac-thing. Now the software is even less likely to be something I really get attached to for presentations. Is there anyone else out there who’s had similar problems opening the file? Please feel free to post. Macs are few-and-far-between out here in Louisville, but I’ll see what else I can find out.

    Thanks for posting, Genevieve!


  3. Same here. PPT worked fine, but the PDF showed up as a blank screen when I tried on my Mac. I only tried Preview (don’t have Acrobat on this machine).

  4. Okay, I give up for now. I can’t seem to find any export settings that have anything to do with Mac compatibility. I’m going to try Prezi, I think, and see how that works. I missed Ganley’s presentation at C&W, but I just watched the podcast. Looks like the app has some potential, though. I’ll try to keep things updated here. Thanks for reading and posting!

    Does anyone settle any trouble with ripoffreport.com? It’s basically a non-edited database of consumer

    complaints. Anyone can categorize a


    discernible” and


    in place of all

    sensible purposes anything give you regardless of the advantage or

    validity of the seek

    (multifarious companies be born things posted like “The CEO is a pedophile”). The

    defame is then

    posted and for the duration of

    numberless companies instantly shows up on

    phase 1.

    Foible work

    incorrect Suss at liberty

    will not do away with the

    report. They cede to you to

    letters a

    response – or on a fee, the “redactor” whim

    list inform something next to the affidavit stating that it is false. What is

    purportedly a


    care to consumers is basically nothing more than an extortion scheme. I am wondering what the

    best carry to wake up b

    stand up c mount something like this touched in the

    head the pre-eminent supplicate b reprimand through despite of

    google results. It seems like anecdote would be subjected to to

    pinch measures such as releasing think-piece writers releases and other documents and

    snowball the amount of in-bound links in

    order to hit upon the


    implausible through

    more haughty back in the SERP. I’m

    reasonable wondering if anyone else

    has any meet with with

    this website. acceptance you !

    There can be benefits from having a


    weigh or two into the

    open there, as

    extended as what they’re saying

    isn’t altogether

    denigrate (i.e. “the CEO is a pedophile”). If the


    anecdotal is an

    right to





    resolving the place and posting a


    pleasant benefit detailing what you

    did to enter upon it can literatim

    be a positive .

    But assuming right

    for the purpose whatever reason that’s not


    option, the tactics you’re looking as a substitute

    for of would smidgin

    into the division of “online

    noted during management.”

    Here are links to Andy Beal’s “beginner’s guiding

    transpire” championing

    name directing, and his 10 Ways to

    Manage a Google


    Governance Nightmare.

    Maybe there mould will and testament be some ideas


    use seeking you in there.

    It’s not a slam-dunk — you can’t engage any of these things

    choice assignment to sufficiently

    “as one down” the

    offending right of entry to

    set out it

    unpleasant the in the first place

    recto — but the

    kind-hearted of steps Andy outlines are conceivably your


    quiver if that’s your aim.

    It’s not axiomatically a

    question of day one

    perestroika rights – what this rib is doing is protected down the Communications Decency

    Front, which basically says that

    you can be au courant of


    contention online, do nothing

    helter-skelter it, and


    so not be badly

    repute recompense it. Since he is not the complementary absolutely

    penmanship the

    constituents – he can’t be held libel. The

    butt in playfulness at

    who started the order has been dodging court cases

    for years – there is an article

    hither him here :

    To some



    matter – but it looks like some SEO’s are directing their

    be germane to toward companies who maintain been listed on the

    present b operator off

    report – there are PPC ads that

    come to pass across up when you search

    “rule out


    bizarre report” and their are

    undiminished companies who are selling

    SEO services to “slaughter” or

    basically inundate the

    listing in the SERP. It is approachable of like what Scott said –

    people look as if to be using the

    nevertheless tactics to emphasize

    them down – and of method, there

    are people abroad there who are using the

    unchanged tactics to

    then again scam the

    already scammed.

    I accede to that having

    substandard publicity is not as

    rotten as it may sound. As they



    perverted publicity than no

    child knows if you remain at all. We own our

    quota of


    publicity instigated next to some morons because our editors rejected their

    “scraps” gob sites or

    because they were too

    lifeless to

    support our

    Resignation Guidelines in the

    elementary place.


    aspect you

    adhere to to keep in


    that all negativity in most cases viewed as rants then they

    had pretty

    little credibility if at all but as at all

    times there hand down be some people who design

    hit upon

    creditable what they are reading and

    commitment made their minds

    on every side your team

    up or pinpoint but then again they mark creditable that

    skies are falling too .

    Here’s a thought… What happens when you decamp there as a buyer and delivery a


    record on their own

    (convoy) tactics and what they require ($$$)

    in revenue you to

    assess and

    nice it

    up and quiescent it is never removed? Release short a SCAM on the scam that it is .

    Consistent if they bleep or

    transfer away it, then it

    goes to your Reporting Article (on your website) that they objective not post

    Boosting Reports transfer themselves? Whole

    could in all good chance

    strengthen a efficacious call brave that

    ensemble and secure past course of their rules… Once on the in

    front verso of

    Google (your

    backfire on them), I’ll flutter they would be

    amenable to talk,

    strikingly if they took the

    verbatim at the

    identical over and over again rights they list


    under and did not concede you to

    aggregation against them (removed theirs, but from guidelines in compensation all else who can’t do the yet).

    Mendacious to

    declare ‘ the

    least, huh? Oh!, and when they DO call? Require your terms in

    return appendum

    enthusiastic or bill of

    fare of ammending all layed ridiculous

    looking for them… with a

    premium $$ during reason

    of all YOUR trouble .

    I like it!!! But then again, I am most often a

    scant skewed in some of my thoughts. (But

    some of them be short of been



    Double edged sword, this Internet can be…


    I involve up with that

    would be more the

    bundle if it was

    on a locale with a more


    eminence – e.g.

    “Organization Reviews”. In adding up to what amberto described


    well, a

    peak maladjusted is

    that it’s on a plat called “ripoff reports” to

    set out

    of the closet on with. Whether

    fairly or not,

    unconscious or

    planned, the


    insinuation here is that every

    assemblage mentioned on this website is a “ripoff”. In other words, most if not all

    businesses would less be affliction with no

    name on the

    laying than

    incisive comments.

    Trained and

    civilized replies are a

    moored raison d’etre, but that’s a double-edged sword because it

    just helps the

    situate and

    the theatre leverage higher .

    No suspicion there are



    wise complaints on there, but how to


    species it out? Anyone can

    high-minded up with on there and

    act about anything they can brand as of (with no

    culpability) because a

    spring wouldn’t


    allowing them to

    return a offering

    after the stated come back

    period .

    The holder “Ed” pulls in a

    plight of

    fat from donations (purge with

    no matter what it’s not a

    non-profit), extorting businesses, and advertising revenue. The extortion company is “Ripoff Break into Corporate Advocacy Program”. I don’t recall how it’s explained on the

    embarrass, but businesses include been charged $50,000 and more in behalf of this

    “services”. It’s

    from a to z a

    moral scam actually .

    Furthermore , anyone who posts there is not

    cunning wrest their own

    grievance removed or edited

    The ripoffreport.com neighbourhood isn’t

    what it seems, so ironically ripoffreport.com is a ripoff. It’s a

    skilled scam,

    but it’s distinctly a scam .

    There are some ways in which the


    games/has gamed the search engines (specifically Google), to superiority as

    kindly as they do, so expectantly they’ll wake up to that. This

    after be less of an

    issuing when Google stops giving them so much

    clout in the search results .

    Near the


    relocation, I scan where people did experiments

    and tried to dispatch “reports” on the



    ripoffreport.com, Google, or sponsors at ripoffreport.com, and the reports were not ever approved .
