\1 Post-mortem for Lab 1
\2 Was our plan sufficient?
\2 What could/should we have done differently?
\1 Grading Lab 1
\2 Everyone will try to reproduce someone else's result!
\2 Assignments to be passed out after class
\2 Due next Tuesday
\1 Giving talks - specifically, conference type talks
\1 Slides
\2 Your slides are not your notes
\3 They are visual aids to punctuate what you're saying
\2 If you and the slides say the same thing, one is not necessary
\2 You are competing with your slides for audience attention
\3 Don't put up complicated stuff all at once---progressive reveal
\3 Use bullet lists as little as possible
\2 Slides are not paper, you don't have to do black on white
\2 Use color to convey information, but remember
\3 Conference projectors have the worst color accuracy in the universe
\3 Colorblindness, esp. red/green colorblindness
\2 If you're not comfortable with humor, just put the joke on the slide
\2 Animations should only reduce confusion or convey information
\1 Preparation
\2 Do practice talks---and consider the audience
\2 Listen to feedback, don't argue with it
\2 Do two practices after the final change you make to your slides
\2 It's important to be comfortable (physically as well as mentally)
\1 Presentation
\2 Never look at your slides
\2 Never look at your slides
\2 Don't us a laser pointer---use animated objects on the slides
\2 Talk to people, not the room
