How NOT to do a presentation LOLOLOL By Daniel Tang LOLOLOL
KISS It stands for: Keep it simple stupid! You want your readers to read your slides! That means one slide should not have more than 50 words in it. Do not ever, have a whole essay on a slide. Everyone hates it and will definitely not read through it. Keep it minimal! If you are presenting a picture or graph, put it on it's own slide, annotate it and explain it.
Taking a huge dump in a powerpoint I’m trying to make a point but this silly picture is in my way and I have nowhere to put it. Interesting picture LOL
Present don’t read Don't read off the Powerpoint - present the Powerpoint! If you just read a massive block of text, you just look unprofessional and boring. Come prepared with cue cards of some sort and glance at it every now and then. Make sure to only have key data on the slides. Add humor!
Layout and Look No scribbly motion path animations Contrasting colors Be consistent Use appropriate fonts I’m… taking… ages… to… read… this… powerpoint… slide…
No scribbly motion path animations Don’t make reader chase your text Don’t do it at all. WEEEEEEEE!
Organize Organize your points into categories. Have a page for each category. If it can’t fit in a single page without making your font smaller, separate into further categories
Fonts Use two fonts (or just keep both same) One for titles One for text Use bold and italics sparingly Use these ones: Times New Roman Arial Helvetica Calibri AVOID LOL: Comic Sans MS Joined handwriting fonts Block fonts By the way, don’t ever make your presentation font size so small that nobody can even be bothered read it
Totally original Powerpoint slide I wrote The original version of this program was created by Dennis Austin and Thomas Rudkin of Forethought, Inc..  Originally designed for the Macintosh computer, the initial release was called "Presenter". In 1987, it was renamed to "PowerPoint" due to problems with trademarks, the idea for the name coming from Robert Gaskins.  In August of the same year, Forethought was bought by Microsoft for $14 million USD ($26.8 million in present-day terms  ), and became Microsoft's Graphics Business Unit, which continued to further develop the software.Forethought, Inc.    PowerPoint 2000 (and the rest of the Office 2000 suite) introduced a clipboard that could hold multiple objects at once. Another noticeable change was that the Office Assistant, whose frequent unsolicited appearances in PowerPoint 97 (as an animated paperclip) had annoyed many users, was changed to be less intrusive. citation needed The use of the Latin word plagiarius (literally kidnapper), to denote someone stealing someone else's work, was pioneered by Roman poet Martial, who complained that another poet had "kidnapped his verses." This use of the word was introduced into English in 1601 by dramatist Ben Jonson, to describe as a plagiary someone guilt of literary theft. MartialBen Jonsonliterary theft  The derived form plagiarism was introduced into English around 1615–25.  The Latin plagiārius, "kidnapper", and plagium, "kidnapping", has the root plaga ("snare", "net"), based on the Indo-European root *-plak, "to weave" (seen for instance in Greek plekein, Bulgarian "плета" pleta, Latin plectere, all meaning "to weave").citation neededLatinIndo-European rootGreek The modern concept of plagiarism as immoral and originality as an ideal, emerged in Europe only in the 18th century.  For centuries before, not only literature was considered "publica materies," a common property from which anybody could borrow at will, but the encouragement for authors and artists was actually to "copy the masters as closely as possible," for which the closer the copy the finer was considered the work.  This was the same in literature, music, painting and sculpture. In some cases, for a writer to invent his own plots was reproached as presumptuous.  This stood at the time of Shakespeare too, when it was common to appreciate more the similarity with an admired classical work, and the ideal was to avoid "unnecessary invention." ideal   Shakespeare  The modern ideals for originality and against plagiarism appeared in the 18th century, in the context of the economic and political history of the book trade, which will be exemplary and influential for the subsequent broader introduction of capitalism.  Originality, that traditionally had been deemed as impossible, was turned into an unrealistic mantra and obligation by the emerging ideology of individualism.  In 1755 the word made it into Johnson's influential A Dictionary of the English Language, where he was cited in the entry for copier ("One that imitates; a plagiary; an imitator. Without invention a painter is but a copier, and a poet but a plagiary of others."), and in its own entry denoting both A thief in literature ("one who steals the thoughts or writings of another") and The crime of literary theft. book tradecapitalism individualism A Dictionary of the English Language  LOLJK, I just ripped it off Wikipedia. Hopefully nobody notices.
