Many thanks to the audience in Sunderland for the great reaction to my talk on Commercial Software Development and getting into the spirit of the presentation.
It was great to ask an audience if they'd been to meetings in the past week, then ask them to put their hands down if those meetings had agendas, and still see most of the hands stay up. Clearly we all still have work to do on eliminating such an atrocious waste of developer resource.
I've uploaded the Powerpoint as a PDF with speaker notes (2Mb), a low bandwidth version of the slideck (9.5Mb) and a higher bandwidth version with all the animations (17Mb).

And I have to say many thanks to Andy Westgarth, the guys from NEBytes and all the crew who made the first DDDNorth such a fantastic event, and for all the sponsors, including DevExpress who feed and watered over 100 geeks at The Stadium of Light. Roll on DDDNorth 2012.
