Techsailor Tuesday! is a monthly sharing session for the sailors to showcase their talents or interests to their colleagues. You can call it "15 minutes of fame" as each person only has 15 minutes to present. This is a fun and interactive session for us to chill out, wind down and have a chance to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for their fellow sailors. Any subject goes, and in any manner or style. Whether by online media ( showing video clips, powerpoint presentation etc...) or physical items ( a book, musical instruments etc...). At Techsailor, we love to share and inspire and we not only share within ourselves, we hope to share it with the rest of the world too!
Our very first Techsailor Tuesday happened to be on a Wednesday (1st July 2009)! So why do we call it "Techsailor Tuesday!" and not Wednesday? or Friday? We all know it's not easy to come up with a name, that everyone would agree on. It's no rocket science but it still takes some brain power ( and death of a few brain cells ) to come up with a "one-hit-fits-all-name". So here goes...
- First, the lesser the syllables, the easier it is to pronounce it. So that leaves us with Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday.
- Second, we don't work on Sundays ( well, some of us still do... but that's not compulsory).
- Third, we wanted a phase that rhymes. And it seems like days starting with the letter "T" fits best. So we are left with Tuesday and Thursday!
- And lastly, why Tuesday and not Thursday? Well... it's all comes down to something I called "feeling". The word Tuesday just feels better with Techsailor than Thursday. No?!?! Oh well, no more debates. Techsailor Tuesday it is! *evil laughs*.
