I've been a bit lazy in my blog posting lately. Every once in awhile you need a brief hiatus from the thinking, synthesizing, writing and analyzing time that blogging takes.
I wanted to share a couple of resources that were submitted to me for comments and for inclusion on my blog and list of PPT and Presentation resources.
The first of these is a blog called Breaking Murphy's Law, written by Lee Potts, that helps presenters deal with the inevitable problems that are bound to come your way when you're presenting - from stolen equipment, to lost presentations, etc. One of his more popular postings was "Don't give a Pigeon a Perch to Poop From", a cleverly titled posting on planning for the inevitable detractors that will look for that perch during your presentation that they can use to attack you from.
The second resource that was submitted was Slide Executive, software designed to help you manage your valuable presentation assets at the desktop level, workgroup level or enterprise. Instead of constantly wasting time searching for that slide you know you have, but can't remember which presentation it was in, the tool is designed to help inventory your assets in a more effective manner. I haven't tried this out, but will be downloading a trial of their desktop version to see how well it works.
