[Corion]: ambrus: Hehe ;) Yeah - such real life stuff is far more inconveniencing than wasting display area due to screen ratio problems :)
[ambrus]: Corion: yes, it's a bit tricky. you can try to adjust the slides live to cover only a part of the screen, but it's still hard.
[ambrus]: Corion: two very hard things about presentations I should try to work on if I have twenty times as much free time as in real life are:
[Corion]: That's why I like HTML - it makes it relatively easy to resize stuff. Resizing with Powerpoint is much harder, or at least, I remember it being that way
[ambrus]: (a) good sans serif fonts optimized for slides in a projector with coverage of the symbols needed for mathematical formulas in a sans serif font matching the text font well, and
[ambrus]: (b) a good presentation system that lets the presenter quickly interactively edit the slides live during a presentation, to combine the advantages of blackboard and overhead slide styles in modern tech
[Corion]: Heh - in university, I cheated on (a) by doing blackboard presentations using chalk. But those were 2 hour presentations, not quick/essential/ reduced presentations where you want to show something quick
[ambrus]: (either on just one screen or two screens). this is necessary because
[ambrus]: overhead slide plus blackboard is inconvenient because the lighting conditions are different and they require separate areas you can't quickly repartition, and typing on keyboard is faster and more convenient than writing on a blackboard
[Corion]: (b) would be cool. I've thought about this doing Pod editing, and even simply regenerating/live updating the browser makes things much more interactive
