After my talk at GLSEC, I wanted to make my slide deck available for viewing by the general public. I noted to the people attending that my presentation was going to be a little heavy on text, so the people reading it later could actually understand what I was talking about. The best talks I’ve seen have been those where the presenters only referenced their slides from time to time. Of course, we’re all thinking of a Steve Jobs keynote. But imagine if you viewed his slide deck after the fact? It would be pretty hard to get detailed information, unless you read a transcript of the event.
After reviewing a few methods of distributing my presentation, I decided on slideshare. The original presentation lasted closed to 1 hour. We spent about 15 minutes of my talk playing two interactive games. (Simon Says and Red Light Green Light) Other than the games, the basis of the talk are all in the deck.
