    • How Not To Shoot Yourself In The Foot With A Bullet (Point) @anthonybaxter
    • a meta-talk
    • may contain half-baked ideas
    • a boring talk is a bad talk
    • what makes a talk boring?
    • traditional slides don’t help
    • slides != paper
    • it's a “talk”, not a “reading”
    • ● reading the bullet points -> not paying attention to your talk ● fast or impatient readers will be reading ahead of you ● audience gets bored – they can see what you're going to say – they know they can drift off for a while ● if you absolutely must do slides in this format, don't just read the bullet points out
    • death to bad clipart
    • what are slides for?
    • emphasis
    • and punchlines
    • free-flowing talk
    • life's pretty fast
    • pay attention
    • you might miss something
    • how to do this?
    • practice
    • know your material
    • practice again
    • timing is trickier
    • go watch stand-up comedy
    • and practice again
    • conclusion
    • steal any of these ideas
    • i did
    • (thanks larry)
    • say no to bullet points
