SLIDES. Latex works fine for making slides. Beamer is commonly used, but why? It uglifies your Latex with bad defaults. Powerpoint combines well with LaTeX, though. Tex your document. Then cut and paste what you want to put on your slide. Once it's on, Powerpoint makes it easy to resize appropriately,and lets you change the background color, insert photos, add plain text, etc. Best of both worlds. --- "Jack Rollins, who managed comics, taught him one of the most important lessons, the one he learned all too well: What matters is getting the audience to like you; after that, they’re ready to laugh."--
