Suggests adoption of a practical methodology for translating technical papers to effective technical presentations. Definitions describe the applicable meeting environment. An integrated set of visuals and associated text provide an example of a presentation while developing the methodology. Basic audience requirements (or constraints) which the presentation designer must accommodate are shown to be the very limited capacity of any audience to process and assimilate information, the need for screening the few ideas that can be transmitted, and the necessity for surmounting audience `significance blindness' by incorporating the ideas as thesis titles on every visual.
