Chris Gardner Meets People from Saipan

Today's keynote speaker was Chris Gardner, whose life story was made famous by Will Smith in the movie, "The Pursuit of Happyness." He was a dynamic speaker and entertained the crowed with lots of humor and inspiration. I recorded his talk, and if anyone wants a copy, I can get it to you (or if someone can tell me how to post it here for downloading, I'll do that.)

The highlight of Chris' day was posing with us for this photo. He knew where Saipan is, so we said, "Okay, you can take a picture with us."


If you haven't seen the movie, it's a great one.

How big is the file?

It's a 58 minute WMA file that's 27 MB big. What's up with that? There's gotta be a way to get it smaller.

Greeting from Seattle WA! i watched "Pursuit of Happiness" a few months ago and was deeply inspired by Gardner's story. If it's still available, is it possible that i get a copy of the audio recording from you via Skype or MSN? (My estimate is that it will take about 20 mins or so.) Please let me know. Thanks in advance!
