So here's this meme what I stole from mific
, because it looks hella fun:resonant said: I went to a conference this fall where instead of saying, "Hello, my name is ..." the name tags said, "Ask me about ..."
I loved that. It was a sustainability conference and that narrowed the options a bit, but there was still a surprising variety. "Ask me about organic eggs." "Ask me about green alleys." "Ask me about saving electricity."
We have a huge range of knowledge and talent here. We pretty much know who can draw and write and pod and vid, but if some of you are experts on octopus intelligence or making eclairs or the works of Jane Austen, I would never know it. I wish we had those name tags here.
So here are my ask me about nametags, and you should proceed to make your own, and we will all know so many things we did not know by the end.Ask me about...
Making charts for counted cross-stitch
Writing dialogue without making it sound like it came from pod people
Pre-Columbian sacrifice in the Maya area (spoiler alert: it's bullshit)
Tips for attending a (large) con, including costuming, spending, and drinking
Death Valley National Park or Lava Beds National MonumentRichard III
(the play and/or the 1995 movie)
Public dungeons and the activities taking place therein
The commodification and reclamation of Southern (US) culture
The concept of language, including uses of the word dialect, why you should never ask a linguist how many languages they speak, and why language and Language are different things
Dedication, or why Sabine quit music and grad school
Your turn! Ask me about these many things, or make your own lists of many things.This entry was automagically crossposted from http://sabinetzin.dreamwidth.org/457061.html. Please comment at DW using OpenID. comments over there.
