New Functionality on Speakezee

If you are in the habit of giving academic talks then you will know that event organisers often want your slides in advance, or an audience member might want a copy. I usually give them some of the slides but not all. You may also be asked for any papers you can share that you talk about. It could be a work in progress or a finalised PDF. You also want to know what your audience thought about your presentation. This usually comes out in the question time though sometimes audiences are too big, or time is too short. At the very least, I am sure you like a “recommended” in your evaluation.

All of the above functionality is now available to academic speakers who are registered on Speakezee. It is so cool. When you give a talk, simply tell the audience to whip out their smart phones and Google your name with the word “Speakezee.” They will be taken to your talk page  where all the functionality is available. What’s not to like?

If you are an event organiser, then you can contact the events manager at Speakezee and we will list your event for either free or a fee depending on the nature of the event. This gives you same functionality.

Spread the word.

    This is unrelated to this post, I am curious about what you might think about the Mandela Effect which is a current meme being propagated via social media that is having quite an impact on the mental health of the people exposed to it. I was lucky enough to come across your video The Self Illusion, which provided a pretty basic example of what could be happening in the brain and causing “the effect”. I feel like you could help bring a lot of clarity to what’s happening and help ground this theory which is quite destabilizing for those impacted by it. Thanks in advance for your response!

      Hi SA,
      I had not heard of the Mandela Effect so had to go look it up. I was amused to see that it has been linked to the possibility of parallel universes but I expect that the more likely explanation is the fallibility of human memory and the ease at which misinformation spreads so easily. We so easily confabulate memories and so, it is no surprise that large groups can misremember events – seeing the second plane hitting the tower etc

What do you think?
