in front of the class

tonight in my operating systems class we were talking about some material which was relevant to Isilon, so Hank (the prof) asked me before class if i would be willing to come up for a bit and talk about it. he wasn’t sure, but in the middle he did invite me up and i spent about 10 minute talking. i wasn’t real prepared so my “presentation” was poor (non-existent, really) but i did answer some questions. it was exciting. i’ve been in touch with him a bit more about research and it is looking more promising with each communication.
