Dear Lifehacker, I have been tasked to make a slideshow for an event at work. I don’t want to make a generic PowerPoint with just boring text or pictures.
Ken Morrison's insight:

I have heard most of this advice before, but I like how it is compact in one place with resources to help you take action on the tips.  I did learn about a free plug-in to make PowerPoint work a bit like Prezi

Newly launched, Slidebean seems to be trying to do what haiku deck does. Login is with Facebook, not my favorite way of doing things, but there are some nice effects here and it produces clean slide shows.

Thank you. This was benefitial. Good reminders! I was at a confernce last week where the keynote showed a picture of concentrated orange juice. He said that our slides should be like the frozen concentrated. Potent and memorable and great at doing only one thing! Don't water it down. You could take that analogy many ways, but I liked it. If it isn't dense, you should have it be on separate slides.
