  • This is the finished version of slide 2, after all the transitions and special effects happen. The script goes something like this:
    show slide that lists 13 design suggestions in impossible to read small print. Start reading them in a boring voice then gradually drift to side of room. make sure you are not looking at screen when the first red print appears. Ignore the screen while you watch the class all look at the animations and ignore you!
