  1. Neo-shambolique: how to present Or Some things that I do

    when I'm presenting that you may or may not find useful depending on the kind of presentations you do and the sort of person you are. Bruce Lawson, Opera London Web Standards
  2. It's really very dull to listen to someone read everything

    out that's on a slide (usually with their back to the audience so they can see the slide). Usually those people add nothing, either. Long strings of text are for handouts/ supporting web pages and not for the actual presentation itself. Doing “Powerpoint karoke” means that you are supporting your slide deck rather than your slide deck supporting your presentation. I know it sounds really obvious but lots of people do it. Don't be one of them.
