The talk went down well, and all the Oxford Geeks were very positive, but I’m most proud of the slides I created.
I started by buying blank tapes, new and shrinkwrapped from eBay, for the amazingly-cheap price of just over £10 for 20 blank tapes. I don’t know how old the tapes really are, but they look like they were manufactured just yesterday.
I then designed simple inlays for the various fridaymix themes, and throughly enjoyed slicing them up just like I did many years ago. I hoped to actually record samples of the fridaymix playlists onto the tapes, but was hampered by a lack of any actual tape recording equipment.
However, I did take the blank tapes along to the event, and managed to persuade at least 5 geeks that a blank 60 minute tape was exactly what they needed that evening.
