Presention at the Open Data for Agriculture G8 Side Event

So my colleagues at IFPRI filmed my presentation that I gave at the Open Data for Agriculture G8 Side event at IFPRI and uploaded it to YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRn6C-zEitQ.

This was my first experience giving an Ignite presentation. Ignite presentations have a unique style where each slide should be no longer than 5 seconds long, and automatically advancing after the 5 seconds. They are meant to re-purpose the PowerPoint presentation to be an aid in story telling, instead of just being projected notes. It was an interesting experience. I don’t know if I’ll be doing any more ignite presentations in the future, but I think the experience will improve how I use PowerPoint in future presentations, whether or not I adhere to this style.
