Leap of faith.

I remember helping out a bunch of dentistry students getting their shit together for a presentation once.
Excited over the new philosophy I've learned from the the likes of Guy Kawasaki, I introduced the idea of showing as little as possible in a powerpoint presentation. Kawasaki has a 10, 20, 30 rule. You presentation should not be more than 10 minutes, it shouldn't contain more than 20 pages, and the font size should always be 30.

Instead of admiration, I saw horror in the dentistry students' eyes. And at that moment, I knew none of them would embrace any change in their normal usual way of presentation: cram everything they think it's relevant(or irrelevant) to prove that they know a lot and then, read from the screen.
