Battledecks 2012 at the American Library Assoc. annual conference

Battledecks is not for the faint of heart. It is a nerve-wracking event where those competing must create a coherent presentation from a deck of slides that they have never seen before. This is truly the perfect way to end any conference experience as courageous individuals compete for the glory of being crowned the next champ.

12 slides, 4 minutes and make sense.The rules are basic, but, as always, "There Can Be Only One".
