How to become a rocket scientist in 3 minutes…

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009

Did some fun training the other day with Katie Ledger and part of it was presenting something in 3-5 minutes. So I though I’d go large and explain how to become a rocket scientist in 3 minutes. It’s essentially a super-top-line overview of how to build the simplest type of pulse jet engine… the ‘pop pop‘ boat engine. Thought I’d start with something that shows the principle before introducing the fantastically simple valveless pulse jet. I should also explain this was at Digital Outlook, a digital marketing agency, so was a little off-piste to say the least.

Anyhow, here’s the video. Bit embarrassing but hey, it’s worth it if you may learn something! :)

If you’re weird, you can get the PowerPoint presentation here.

My very first piece of flash…

Just as a bit of silliness, I thought I’d post my first flash movie. I’d worked in Director since 1992 and got thrown in at the deep end one day (some time in 2000 I think). Even has roller goodness. Er, awesome. Gotta love Flash 4 Actions
