Here are ten ways I’ve learned to help you simplify information and make it more useful: Add a One-Liner Key Take Away.   This
is my favorite trick for simplifying slides.   If a slide has too much stuff on it and the point is not clear, a quick fix is to add a one-liner to the bottom that makes the point.  Once you have the one-liner take away, it’s easier then to go back and overhaul the slide.   You can use one-liners in more than just slides.  For example, notice how I’m starting each of these list items with a simple one-liner take away up front.

Upcoming Book Review–Microsoft Silverlight 5 and Windows

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
I picked up a book that looks very interesting: Microsoft Silverlight 5 and Windows Azure Enterprise Integration
A bit of a mouthful, but the table of contents looks very good. There are a lot of Silverlight books out there, but few that actually focus on all the other stuff you need to know outside the boundary of your client application - the hosting, services, and deployment to Windows Azure. Its got chapters focused on the hosting, working with Azure storage, RIA Services, OData services and more. I'll write up a review here in a couple weeks after I've had time to make it through it.
