Though the title of Lifehacker’s post is tasteless, it gets to the point: that too many presentations fail to have the impact they should. Too many teachers and professors, people who are professional communicators speaking to groups, do so not very well. The post covers five key problems and offers solutions for them:
- Too Many Ideas on One Slide
- Clichés and Clipart
- Lack of Emphasis
- Random Design Choices
- No Relationship to the Audience
So read up on how to reduce the suckage in your presentations!

It’s the most succinct way of thinking about everything web that I’ve come across. I am stymied by the implied responsibility of having a blog (two, actually), a Twitter account, a Facebook account, a Flickr account, a Posterous account, and on and on. But I should know, and remember, that almost all of life is about how humans try to understand by imposing a story on what happens to us, and making stories out of our lives.
Tell your story.
