We did a dry run of our presentation in front of Microsoft designer AND Mr. Bill Buxton. Buxton is a famous author, computer scientist and designer. He is currently a Principal researcher at Microsoft Research. He is known for being one of the pioneers in the human–computer interaction field.
Mr. Buxton had the first comment once we finished which was, “Who the hell are you and why should I trust you with all my documents?” which is a fair point. Loretta then asked him, “What online do you trust, if anything?” Ah, rhetoric. Answering a question with a question.
Our technical rehearsal went well as we continued to iron out glitches in resolution and the careful placement of the clip-on microphone.
