Dave Winer has an alternative approach to making a presentation (as compared to a slide show): a linked reading list. “Then, when I take the stage, I bring up the reading list in a browser, projected for all to see, and it’s got all the links right there for things I want to refer to during the speech. It provides people who want to prepare beforehand a way to do so, and gives people something to look at after the speech. No more awkward flipping through slides while speaking, and no more worrying about forgetting something important. A happy medium.” Must try this out sometime.
