I remember listening to Bill Strickland, founder of the Manchester Craftsman Guild, give a keynote address at an Arts and Education Summer Seminar where I was on the technology faculty.

Nancy White gave the Keynote at the D2L conference in Duluth yesterday. She has also shared her slides and wiki here. I'm a big fan of the "wikitation" and think that a wiki coupled with slide share is a great way to do it.
Brian Kelly also has some thoughts about how participants and speakers can share slides and handouts from conferences or gatherings. He reminds us that you should explicitly assign the licence you’ve selected with the presentation. And you should also allow the presentation to be downloaded.
For the recent presentation, several colleagues shared their slides with me. How do you handle attribution? For those colleagues who deeply influenced my thinking, I give them a credit with screencapture or photo at the front of my presentation, include the blog url. I also include their blog urls in the accompanying wiki. For attribution for flickr photos, I include the url either on the photo itself or at the end. I need to be more consistent ...
I could not resist with Blip.TV video from June's NetSquared event, "Creating Web-Based Presentations for Your Nonprofit," featuring two of my favorite drugs err I mean tools, Scrapblog and SlideShare.
Meanwhile, I got a question from Sue Waters about "What is the best way to narrate powerpoint and put on the web?" I added my two cents over at her post. Any thoughts?
