Secrets of a World Memory Champion

Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k44oJ961eFM

You don't have a bad memory, you were just never taught how to use it. We are going to practice several powerful memory techniques that have been perfected by memory contest champions over the last hundred years. By the end of this talk, you will know how to quickly memorize a foreign language, driving directions, phone conversations, the entire Chuck Norris filmography, your friend's credit card number, a shuffled deck of playing cards, and the name of every person you meet at RailsConf.
