comment Presentation Tools Back In The Day
I'm curious to see there are any relevant answers, as during the early '90s it seemed to me that we didn't do "computer aided presentations". You might demo something on a screen to a small number of people, but presentation usually implies a larger number at some distance. Projection of a computer screen was rare and expensive - if you wanted to project you used drawn or printed transparancies and an overhead projector. Mind you, Powerpoint had yet to corrupt expectations so that slide are expected to accompany all talks. You just tied an onion to your belt, which was the style at the time.
