notes for thesis defence.

On December 13th 2018 at 5:00 pm, I’ll be defending my thesis. Instead of organizing all of my talking points and  visuals and audio files as a PowerPoint, I decided to do so in a blog post. This way all the information is readily accessible to me and anyone attending (in-person or online).  

I’ll be going “Go-Live” on my Instagram account (@thats.absurd). Feel free to join me.
