MacVoices #18168: Road to Macstock – Allison Sheridan’s Changing State of Presentation

The Road to Macstock finally takes on Allison Sheridan, who tells us what she may or may not present at the conference. Will it be text tricks or mind mapping? Allison talks about some of the surprising things that you can’t do with text and how to get around them, then take’s Chuck’s suggestion of turning her mind map of her presentation into a presentation itself. Will she present one, the other, or a combination of both?
