• PowerPoint: fine, if not required.
  • Clip art of flag of country under discussion: sure, why not.
  • ANIMATED clip art of waving flag: oh, hell no.

This is the second conference I’ve been to where the PowerPoint flipped out of slideshow mode in the middle of a paper and instead shows the program in the mode where you write slides, only using about 80% of the screen to show the actual slide. And the speaker looks at the screen and doesn’t seem to notice anything wrong. What is up with that?
