Slide Talk

Once again, I am holding to my very strongly held beliefs about talks.

I am giving a four-hour tutorial. I currently have 14 slides, including the two shown below. One of my slides is my name/institution/contact information. There are no sentences or bullet points on any of my slides. In fact, the wordiest slide is an intentionally confusing diagram that is labeled with many instances of "16 GB RAM" and "6 cores" -- to demonstrate the complexity of a particular system. Aside from that, there are roughly zero words on my slides.

And now back to work on proof-reading and perfecting my 16-page handout.
