Why I should not be allowed to use PowerPoint

So, I'm trying to put together slides for a talk at Code n' Splode tomorrow. My talk is supposed to be about my experience in the ICFP Programming Contest this year.

So far, I have eleven slides. I have an 800-word crib sheet, but half of my slides have nothing on them but pictures, and for the ones that do have text, it's often just numbers and punctuation. I am not even kidding. Also, so far my slides and my crib sheet are about

  • The history of ICFP and the contest
  • What functional programming is
  • Why I like functional programming
  • Scott McCloud

Please note that exactly none of these are what my talk is supposed to be about. Clearly, this is going to be the best Code n' Splode talk ever!
