University of Colorado - Journalism School Commencement Speaker Aw Yeah

Sometimes I get invited to speak at things. It's fun. Other times, I get invited to speak at college graduations. Those are beyond fun -- especially when it's the school I got a degree from. 

Here's a photo of me speaking at the University of Colorado's School of Journalism and Mass Communication Fall '11 Commencement. (It was a few months ago, but I finally managed to score some photos -- long story.) I asked the young graduates to raise the roof with me one last time. It was the dumbest thing I've ever done, but I have opted to live without regret.

Did I mention that the ceremony was at Macky Auditorium? Haven't been on that stage since the last TEDxBoulder (which is returning to Boulder on Sept. 22). Gorgeous venue. Huge venue. It dwarfs all.

Having skipped my own commencement back in 2007 because I was too cool for school, it was wonderful to have finally put on a cap and gown. I wore my tassel on the wrong side, but I'm legit enough to own up to it (and not reverse these images before posting them). Live and learn.

    Too cool for school! Don't we all feel the same. I am glad that you have returned and presented yourself on the stage after many years. Graduation day for me is a great honor to the knowledge we gained throughout the Academics.
