I gave a presentation today on the details about how I was configuring the software for the solexa sequencer (on the hope that some one else could actually run it)

Basically I needed to make copying files around between several computers, editing a text file, and running a couple of unix commands interesting.

Somehow I did it. I don't know if I lowered expectations by saying I'm presenting something "intrinsically boring" but I've gotten at least 5 compliments. I do think I actually did give a good presentation.

One of the resources that helped inspire me was a couple of posts on presentation zen

I rather liked the comparison between Steve Jobs and Bill Gates.

There's also several rather funny video mockings of powerpoint presentations in PowerPoint: sometimes you have to laugh to keep from crying.
