Everyone was laughing, except me. Since 2007, when Doug Zongker, a software engineer at Google, published a seminal paper honoring those who had suffered going through an inscrutable scientific talk, and made a memorable presentation. I mean, how is it possible I lived for 4 years without knowing this? Hey, Tweeple, where were you? Why wasn’t I told anything?
Here is his presentation, “Chickens”, and here is his paper (__please, download it!__), presented at the 2007 AAAS Conference(*) and published in the Annals of Improbable Research in 2006. Please, laugh loudly.
AAAS is the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
