A slideshow for a conference presentation? Are you crazy?

After thinking about various ways to address the lack of connectivity at Waterside, where I’m slated to speak on what they title as “keeping your backlist alive” but I call “building a brand as an author” I have decided that the easiest solution is to simply take screen shots of various Web sites, PDF files, email messages, etc., that I want to talk about and have a slide show as my presentation. No ubiquitious PowerPoint bullet items, no fancy Keynote transitions, just the wonderful shareware app GraphicConverter in slide show mode.

And for those aspiring authors who are reading this, you should attend the talk! And if not, perhaps you’re part of a user’s group that could host my slideshow (um, presentation) locally instead? These slides would even work on a PC, I promise.
