Marshall Island Navigation Techniques

Posted on Wed 22 July 2009 in Geek, Navigation

Great talk from Ignite Seattle by Ken Beegle has some great overview of Polynesian navigation techniques. The talk is really has a deeper meaning, but he does a good job in his allotted 5 minutes covering the stick charts.

Ignite talks are timed 5 minute min-lectures, the slides are pre-programmed to flip automatically and the presenters have to have it down-pat. My friend Brady from O’reilly publishing hosts these in Seattle and they occur around the world.
