Device warns you if you're boring or irritating

Wouldn't a gadget that warned you when you were being boring help you in your social interactions with others? Then you wouldn't have to rely on your own faulty human perception. Kind of like a Garmin for the navigationally challenged.

heh, so any thoughts on who should get one? Could make conferences a lot more tolerable...

Hah... every lawyer who's ever spoken at a security con should have one.

The lawyers I listened to at a local con wouldn't have needed one, though. The human head does a very good job of alerting you to boring content. If it's on the table, face down, during your talk... good clue you're pretty boring.

ouch... including Jennifer Grannick?

The problem with security cons and trusting the human head alert is that your audience might just be hung over. hah. Of course that mostly applies to morning talks. If you are speaking at 3pm and the human head alert goes off, yeah, that's probably your Boring sign.

Nah... I adore Jennifer; she's excepted. She actually knows what she's talking about. I really should stop generalizing about lawyers.

So, the human head alert doesn't *always* work, but it works for me. If *my* head is on the table, you're boring. I don't drink. :-D
