  23. 23. Your slideIf your slide looks like this, I don’t want to be your friendanymore. If you make slides like this, you are likely to becompelled to read each and every word, exactly how it iswritten on the screen. It isn’t that you are a bad person, it isthat you don’t care enough about other people to try to:• Present your information so it will stick with them and keepthem awake while you are speaking.• Keep from boring them to death. I tend to start doodling orwrite short stories about audience members throwing thingsat speakers.• The least you could do is find a funny cat picture and stick itin the middle somewhere. That would at least wake us up fora few seconds. Who doesn’t like cat pictures?
