Poster Tease

Dear Diary,

Today I learned about the other great Greek wise figure:  Postertes.  You see, at some conferences, if you bring a poster, you must present a few teaser slides to attract anyone to come and see your work.

In Greek culture, it was common place to do this and one wise man, Postertes, did such a fine job that he attracted all manner of gods and mortals from Mount Olympus and Beyond that the likes of Socrates, Homer, Zeus, and Hercules, came by to hear his work.

Now that I have to do this, I will show Kieron my sales pitch during the next group meeting.  Maybe I can put together a good poster tease like the Greeks.
