This showed up in my subscriptions (googletechtalks) a few days ago. I only watched the first 10 minutes. The presentation was just too sloppy to bear. After these 10 minutes I still had no clue where he intends to go or why. It really was that bad.
Tech presentations can be so simple. Start with the problem, tell why it's a problem, and then tell how you tackled it. Then thing like how it works and why it works. And most importantly - how much better it works. Now, then, delta. Done. Really really easy.
tbh with the information simply oosing out of him it doesn't really matter how he presents. I just really can't be annoyed by it, perhaps its cause because I've seen too many slick presentations that lacked substance or where simply full of lies. That and starting with a problem can blow up in your face just as well; they either can't comprehend the problem, recognize there is one or get down right hostile because they think they know where the problem is but simply isn't. No I've been through presentation where ppl kept sticking to: "this is the problem - my prototype doesn't work because of this no matter what you say" - sorry my stuff is working in production for months now and it simply ain't an issue. "you lie"
tbh it really doesn't matter if it was bearable at all depending on the information he's giving out. Presentations aren't about selling stuff or entertaining ppl they are first and fore most about relaying information.
Ok so I pretty much watched it in one go. The stuff that annoyed me was more so was: that I couldn't hear what the audience was saying, that no one pointed out that he wasn't talking into the mic(why does he need to hold one anyway) and that someone skypeing in had his microphone open.
