  43. 43. On dull conference speakers teachers "They are not sophisticated, erudite scientists speaking above our intellectual capability; they are arrogant, thoughtless individuals who insult our very presence by the lack of concern for our desire to benefit from a meeting class which we choose to attend."
  44. 44. On the importance of presenting well "Failure to spend the [class] time wisely and well, failure to educate, entertain, elucidate, enlighten, and most important of all, failure to maintain attention and interest should be punishable by stoning. There is no excuse for tedium."
  45. 45. On reading a conference paper class notes "There is never an excuse to read a paper notes ... Better to lower the level of verbal excellence and raise the level of extemporaneous energy."
  46. 46. On using slides (35mm and OHPs in those days): "They must be brightly lit and convey a simple thought. If you need a pointer to indicate an important concept or location on a slide, it is probably too crowded or difficult to comprehend."
