So I can get mugged by the muse and pound out 3500 words of fanfic in an evening, but I can't think of a better title for my presentation than: "[Project]: More Lessons Learned, Plus Here's Some Plots"?

Thanks, brain. You're a big help.

Maybe if you write some Kim Stanley Robinson fanfic ...

"Then everyone was completely f*cking insane for about three centuries. Although they were quite plausible centuries, future-history-wise. It was just the individuals that were all total loonies."

I would call it "Steven."

No really! You could subtitle it: "You may not be familiar with Steven but once you get to know it you'll be very excited to know him now that he's be rehabbed. Plus he has some amusing anecdotes."

Would it help to call it "Stephen" with a "ph"? Sometimes, they like that better.

Someone needs to use "Alberic." If Adelaide had been a boy, she would have been Alby.

Way to take ownership over the whole process, illusion-of-self.

Oh, he can't help it. He's just a system for self-aware monitoring and distribution of volition, after all.

Also useful for centralizing information exchange and social bonding with his fellows.

In terms of "here's some plots," I'm emailing you a slide that might be useful.

Or probably not. But I actually keep it on my laptop ready to go, in case of a less-than-formal meeting presentation (yeah, it's that kind of company), or a particularly annoying client.

Is this about bilinear interpolation and converting data from one map projection to another?

How about: "The Plot Thickens: Bilinear Interpolation Fills in the Gaps." or

"You Can Get There from Here: Converting Data from One Map Projection to Another." or

"Problems in Translation".

Oh, that's only a little piece of it. If the conversion between projections were the focus, I'd be sorely tempted to go with "Why Oblate Spheroids Are The Devil", or perhaps "The Earth Is Round? Well That's Damned Inconvenient"

Well, if you get stuck again, I'm open to receiving a precis and sending you suggestions overnight.
