This is a neat idea I hadn't run across before. "A Google jockey is a participant in a presentation or class who surfs the Internet for terms, ideas, Web sites, or resources mentioned by the presenter or related to the topic. The jockey's searches are displayed simultaneously with the presentation, helping to clarify the main topic and extend learning opportunities." You know, I'm beginning to think I should ask for multiple screens and projectors at my talks - a screen for the Google jockey, a screen for the audience live conference chat (aka, the backchannel), a screen for the photo montage, and more. The problem with lectures (for me, at least) is that they are one-channel - the information bandwidth is tiny. But more channels could add a lot of texture and depth to the experience.
