Use Godin's tips to fix your PowerPoint presentations

I've spoken at conferences, meetings, workshops, and more for years. And I would work really hard at putting together slides that would make sense when I wasn't there to answer questions. As a result, I've had some pretty slide-dense presentations. (You may have seen one or two. ;-))

As I was reading through Seth Godin's Triiibes site the other day, I found a post that said something like, "read what Seth has to say about PowerPoint." (The entire note I wrote was "Seth - PPT book".) Only it turns out that it's not a book. It's a blog post.

The post is titled Really Bad Powerpoint. (Yes, "Powerpoint". [sic]) And it's full of great information that for some reason I was just never able to wrap my brain around.

So for those of you planning on attending my upcoming DocTrain session, Four Features That Matter When Choosing a Help Authoring Tool, you'll be the first to see the results as I implement Seth's ideas. This will be fun :-)

(And if you want more information on Tribes, check out Seth's new book, coming soon: Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us, available from many online booksellers.)

Have you used Alltop?

Guy Kawasaki (website and blog) formally announced Alltop in March 2008. Alltop is a "news aggregation site"...that is, it provides links to top stories for a number of popular topics. The main page contains the topic links (about 150...there were 40 when it started) and each link contains specific links for each topic organized by source.

So if you're looking for up-to-date information that isn't pushed to your system (ala RSS feeds) but is there when you need it, visit Alltop today. Set a timer or you'll be there for awhile ;-).
