Ok, long story short;
I am to make a presentation this friday night from 8pm to 8:45pm at church during our "Fortifying the Family" weekend.
My topic: Protecting our children from internet threats (porn, chat predators, etc).
2 problems with this:
1) Ive never spoken in front of a crowd like this before. Well, I did one time and vowed never to do it again.
2) Everyone at church now thinks of me as "the computer guy" and just last night I had 3 people come talk to me about some computer problem they had.
I don't want to be "that guy!" Heck, I don't want to be that guy ANYWHERE anymore actually!
Here is the other bad part.
Since I've never really done this before, alot of people (mostly ladies, age 45 to 80) are coming for one of two reasons:
1) They think I am going to teach them how to "use their computer" (Which I had to assure a lady for about 5 minutes that that was not what I was going to talk about. I had to end the conversation with "You don't have any young children, you don't need to come!")
2) They want to hear me speak.
Im serious, a 50-ish year old lady approached me, then 2 minutes later a 78 year old lady approached me to say how she is so looking forward to hearing me speak! I am thinking "You are looking forward to hearing me tell you how you can protect your 10 year old from porn and chat room threats? Lady, your gradchildren are probably in college!"
Old church ladies are funny. I guess they look at presentations and speeches as entertainment. I could probably do a 30 minute lesson on sweeping out the garage floor and these ladies would show up to be entertained...
