Dear Dad, please accept my sincere congratulations on your IEEE award! Well-done! Keep up the good job:) … By the way, this is post # 113, which is a good sign, I guess – I’ll bet you know why :)))
Brought to my attention by Alexander Shelkovnikov’s post on LinkedIn, the topic covers so much more… Enjoy!
A perennial dilemma of sorts happens when you’re choosing between Presentations’ Handouts and PowerPoint Presentations. Especially at the conferences.
Handouts might be easier to handle – literally – once you’ve printed them out.
On the other hand, nothing can beat the elegance of a silver screen well-crafted slides.
What I call here Takahashi-Lessig method, is actually two separate methods, called Takahashi method and Lessig method. Why do I kind of “blend” them? Because the idea behind the both is similar – do not overburden your slides. It’s not even a “one idea per slide” approach, rather, it’s one or two word(s). And a (very) large font size.
Both Masayoshi Takahashi and Lawrence Lessig techniques convey the same message of “less is more.”
But not even fanciest infographics can substitute for the person giving a speech. Because words and figures would mean little without the presenter’s charisma, his or her ability to persuade, convince, and, eventually, win over an audience.
Example? A really good one: Dick Clarence Hardt talk on Identity 2.0

Below you will find the links to some of Fred Schindler’s writings. He is the winner in the 29th annual Apex awards for Publication Excellence Competition. Fred’s columns in the IEEE Microwave Magazine, namely, “Is Smaller Better?” in the January 2016 issue, “My Great-Grandfather Was a Webmeister” (my personal favorite:) in the May 2016 issue and “Managers Too” in the November 2016 issue received three Awards of Excellence. They all are beyond awesome!
Of course, always noteworthy are: IEEE Spectrum, National Geographic, The Economist, to name a few. And so many more …
