Slideshare the cool site that allows easy sharing of powerpoint slides via the web AND converts powerpoint into a more web friendly format for embedding, emailing, etc. has now started a great series on slide tips.

It’s a shame, really, because PowerPoint can be a great visual aid for a presentation. But it’s not the presentation itself. You are.
