I'm prepared. And psyched to give my speech today!
Thanks to Chris Dillon kicking me in the ass 8 days ago, I put nose to grindstone this week and practiced diligently. And probably rehearsed my speech in FULL at least 8 times, culminating with yesterday afternoon's inebriated dress rehearsal which went off without a glitch. To which I dragged Jimmy Wales, after enjoying a boozy, al fresco repast at Deep Water Bay. There's no doubt: alcohol helps! A lot! I say that unapologetically.
I'm already here at TED this morning. I wanted to see Jose -- and the gutsy and beautiful Annabelle Bond give the opening speech at 9 am. She inspired me when we rehearsed together with Chris the other week.
