"The next time you give a presentation with your laptop, don't
use bullet points, long-running paragraphs, or templates. Oh, and
don't be so organized either. Exercise some freedom, as in free and
open source, and talk to your audience, as opposed to reading from
slides. Let OpenOffice.org Impress, a tool for creating multimedia
presentations, add richness to your story.
"This article will show you how to implement some advanced
features of Impress. While all the minute particulars have been
covered thoroughly in Impress tutorials, my purpose here is to
encourage you to star in your own show, while your slide show
serves a supporting role.
