Dick Hardt style

Sounds like a porn movie. But, no, Dick Hardt is a CEO of Sxip Identity, and the point here is his style of doing a presentation. See a video of his Identity2.0 presentation at OSCon. Lots and lots of slides, with just a few words or a picture each, creating an interesting flow of a presentation, which in many ways work better than a normal powerpoint presentation with bullet points, etc.

Hardt didn't invent this style, but it somehow got associated with his name. Rather, Lawrence Lessig has used it for a while, and I've seen it before in videos of his talks. So, Lessig Style would be as correct.

Interestingly, both of these guys are fairly boring speakers. If they were just standing there talking, they're not exactly great orators. But combined with a dynamic presentation like that, they're great speakers who everybody pays attention to all the time.

Hm, I've got to try that. Most Powerpoint presentations are boring. Time for some innovation.

... your presentation, Flemming.
Now that you said it, I want to see a nice presentation.
Already know what you will present? ;-)

Oh, I need something to present too? Hmm. I thought I could just be present.

Yeah, I'll think of something.

I liked that presentation very much I was able to stay present with most of it but he didn't actually say what his product was - just invited you to go and particpate in a further exploration and dialogue.
I would love seeing more presentations in this style.
(And by the way he is tipping his hat to Lawrence Lessig - there is a credit at the end 'with thanks to Lawrence Lessig's presentation style influence')

Ah, cool. Maybe I've found the secret to talking to my wife about some of the things I'm into, without sounding like I'm giving a boring lecture. ;-)

I suppose it makes it more experiential, an exploration rather than a lecture. Participating rather than being talked (down) to.
