If they can persuade cultures to change long held fundamental beliefs without loosing their heads.. surely you can sell an idea to some guy in a suit with a well told story. As far as I know, Jesus never used powerpoint.

Then anarchism must be the new libertarianism. Go turn out the lights and bump into something.

I think this will be the last time I use blockquote, but thanks to the webmaster for making the reply screen a full window.

1). Know your audience and how they think

2) Never put more then one word on a slide
the audience should be listening to you, not reading/thinking ahead

3). Learn about persuasion from the missionaries. If they can persuade cultures to change long held fundamental beliefs without loosing their heads.. surely you can sell an idea to some guy in a suit with a well told story. As far as I know, Jesus never used powerpoint.

In short there is only the idea. everything else is show business and spell check.

A “dangerous book?” Oooh, better calll the house subcommitte on unamerican activities…

I’m no fan of O’Reilly or their conferences.

And you sure aren’t a libertarian, either. Haven’t you heard? Statism is the new fascism.

Great job on putting the two together. But one question, how did you keep the two flowing so smoothly?

It seems as if more people are realizing the flaws of powerpoint presentations, particularly the way that they supplant the speaker, rather than augment the presentation. After “Who Owns Culture” and seeing the impact of your talk, I’ve really changed my presentation style to build on the augmentation concept, and clearly many others are developing / adopting the same idea.

They also sold one of the most dangerous books on hacking through their catalog, last time I checked. I’m no fan of O’Reilly or their conferences.

So this style was your thing…? I did notice at the end where he credits you…

But as a distributed systems security architect, the content was particularly useful to me.
