How sad is it that I track my PubCon Stats?

I taped all my sessions and had them transcribed, so not only do I know how long I ran over (sorry!) I also know how many words / sentences / paragraphs were contained.

See E-Commerce Optimization slides and E-Commerce SEO slides

  • Both "15 minute" sessions ran 22 minutes
  • Both sessions had the same number of words (~4800)
  • SEO = More tactical = More Slides/Ideas
  • E-Commerce Optimization = More strategic = Less Slides/Ideas





  • The main reason I'm doing this is because I need to know how "long" a 45-60 minute talk should be. This is VERY helpful to me. I guess I can't have more than 200 slides right? -- ROB
