Cut down those PowerPoints!
It's such a relief hearing so much talk about how cramming tons of words and information into PowerPoint slides is so... yesterday.
One of the big proponents of that is Guy Kawasaki who created what he calls the 10/20/30 Rule of PowerPoint. "It's quite simple: a PowerPoint presentation should have ten slides, last no more than twenty minutes, and contain no font smaller than thirty points." Hallelujah!

If there was one rule of thumb we all took into our lectures, workshops, etc., I vote for this one!
