Merlin Mann of 43folders.com tells us about the little things he does to make his presentations a little bit better. He explains where he got his ideas from, which rules he follows and even gives some advices on slide design.
First, of course, please understand that I don’t pretend to be any kind of expert about this stuff — I’m barely even a student. I’ve cobbled together whatever I have right now based mostly on the work of much smarter and more talented people, so I’m not claiming to have invented any of this stuff. I’ve been fortunate to finally start figuring out the right mix of visuals and presentation style that (I hope) works for my personality and what I have to say.
Dealing with that I found another great thread on his blog where he asked his readers for tips on presentation techniques. The comments on this particular posting are really worth reading.
