Michele,

While I enjoyed learning the technical aspects of this slideshow, I also came to realize that there was something else happening with how I was organizing the content. I have tended to see blogging as a way of connecting the dots on a particular topic I want to learn about. But in turning a blog posting into bite-sized chunks for the presentation, I went one step further in my learning - I had to figure out what the main ideas were. I had to ask myself, "At it's core, what am I trying to say about this topic?" The more succinct I became, the more I synthesized the information in my brain. So now I'm enamored with the idea of "PowerPointing for learning" as well. Perhaps the only true way you can prove mastery of a subject is not writing the 50 page term paper, but the articulate elevator-speech on why it's important in 20 slides or less.
