Dork Shorts

If you took a look at our schedule outline, you will see that, on the last day of the conference, during lunch, we are scheduled to do something called “dork shorts.”

Dork Shorts is a THATCamp tradition which is loosely based upon the idea of PechaKucha 20X20, a presentation that gives a lot of information in a very short time.

In 2 minutes or less, you can present a project you are working on–either one you are currently doing, or one you are now inspired to do because of THATCamp HBCU–and make some powerpoint slides to show as you do it.

It doesn’t have to be fully realized.  You may present on things you are just thinking about, if you wish.
