Preparing my Ignite talk for Science Foo Camp

I'm allowed 5 minutes and 20 slides (15 seconds each) to tell the #arseniclife story to about 250 scientists at Science Foo Camp on Saturday.

I'm hand-drawing the slides, so as to have simple appealing illustrations rather than dense data.  This is taking ages as I lack both the artistic skills and the technical skills to do it efficiently, but I think it will be worth the effort.  Fitting everything smoothly into 5 minutes also takes a lot of practicing - luckily each practice takes only 5 minutes.


  1. I like your open project idea its great hope everyone follows it.

  2. @Edward: This talk isn't Prezi, just an 'Ignite' talk with plain vanilla PowerPoint. I saw my first Prezi talk the other day, but its in-and-out swooping was much too extreme - the audience got dizzy. But I'm going to try one soon.
