Big History Show Paper is Done

It wasn’t easy, but I finally finished the paper for the Liverpool conference on Friday. The main trouble was the presentation software, but I finally settled on Apple’s Keynote, from the new iWork 08 suite. It’s superb. I started this morning never having used it before and by 4.30 this afternoon I’d finished the paper–and it wasn’t the only thing I did today either. I don’t generally have much call for this kind of thing so I’m not sure what I’ll do when the 30 day trial ends, but having struggled in the past to be inspired while using Powerpoint and Impress, I’m very pleased with this. It was a pleasure in the end.
