In the latest issue of C&EN, in the Newscripts section (page 40), is a beautiful tidbit about bad presentations, with a link to a great talk on bad talks -


If you scroll down to the bottom, there’s a YouTube video where he talks about bad talks.  It’s excellent.  I wasn’t intending to watch the entire talk (it’s 30+ minutes) but I got sucked in.  Not only is it amusing, it’s really good advice.  Because we all make presentations, his tips are important to keep in mind.
