Gotta love it when someone posts errata to their Web site -- on a speech they gave! Getting some book authors to do the same for their books is, at times, akin to pulling teeth out of an alligator using pliers with really short handles.
And to prove Kroc is less anti-social than I:
“I did state that I would try keep the talk non-technical, but quickly spiralled off into far too technical details at times, this was due to some nerves as this is the first time I’ve given such a talk in front of an audience. I hope I didn’t uncecessarily blind people with gibberish”
First time I gave a talk in front of an audience was my course in Business English at college. The speech was to last five minutes or less. The topic was completely up to the talker, and (according to the predictability of my nature) I chose "game development" as my topic.
I took the podium in front of a class of about a dozen people, and gave my lecture.
Almost ten minutes later (note that I went over the allotted time by almost 100%), I ended my speech by uttering a single word -- a word I was unable to read due to a "last minute addition" written in chickenscratch, which caused a delay of about 20 seconds, the entirety of which was filled with deafening, awkward silence -- after several minutes of leaning into the podium (almost pushing it over once or twice) and assaulting it numerous times with my nervousness-induced leg twitching (though I think a good few of them classified as 'kicks').
