If you ever have to make a PowerPoint presentation, there are two ways to do it. The way that everyone does it, where you take your points, put them on the slides, then read the slides as they go by, while your audience drools and falls asleep. Or you can do it like this . The second way is harder, and scarier, and much more effective. I'm going to thnk of how to use this technique at my presentation at the MySQL Con.
