You know this is how it would have started:
Good morning. Just a second while I get this connection to work. Do I press this button here? Function-F7? No, that's not right. Hmmm. Maybe I'll have to reboot. Hold on a minute. Um, my name is Abe Lincoln and I'm your president. While we're waiting, I want to thank Judge David Wills, chairman of the committee supervising the dedication of the Gettysburg cemetery.
Lincoln had a little more to say at Peter Norvig's Web site. And then dive right into his deck (it's only six slides long -- Lincoln showed Herculean levels of restraint, apparently). Trust me -- it's worth a few minutes of your Friday.
