Presentation Materials for #ISACScon

I'm thrilled and honored to speaking at the annual ISACS conference today! Please feel free to download my materials so that you don't have to take copious notes. In my YouTube and global presenations, there are many hyperlinks to resources that are clickable, including some photos. I've included my slides in Apple's Keynote format as well as PDFs. I've also added my slides to Slideshare. If you are working on an iPad, the Keynote and PDF options will probably work best for you.

If you need to follow up with me, please contact me at lucy@lucygrayconsulting, @elemenous on Twitter, or @GlobalEdCon on Twitter.

Slideshare Saga Update

Just a quick post to update my previous post about my account disappearing from Slideshare.... 

I heard this via Slideshare's support web site earlier this week:

I am sorry for the inconvenience you have had with SlideShare. We have seen your tweets / support tickets and our team is investigating your case. It is possible your account was caught as a false positive by our spam detection tool. Your account which was deleted is being investigated and I will get back to you once we have some clue on what went wrong here.

I also have heard daily from 2 separate representatives saying that Slideshare is still working on this issue and they are trying to recover my account. At some point, I believe someone mentioned information which led me to believe that they think this happened around April 15, but they don't have records or backups that far back.

I hope progress is being made, and all I can do is wait. The more I think about this, I have come to the realization that this could potentially have an impact on my professional work. A part of my digital footprint is completely erased and I find it troublesome that potential clients (and educators who use my resources) may never be able to access my slides. Again, this is not about backup, it's about the network I developed on SlideShare, the dissapearance of a list of favorited presentations I had compiled, and the loss of metadata accrued around my personal brand. Even if I re-upload the slide decks I have, I can't rebuild that stuff overnight. 

So, I appreciate Slideshare trying to be a bit more responsive, and I am hoping for better news this week!
