Presentation Zen on the rule of thirds

I'm a big fan(*) of Presentation Zen, a great blog by Garr Reynolds devoted to teaching people how to improve their talks and presentations (how many poorly executed PowerPoint talks have I dozed through? It feels like thousands). The latest posting examines The Rule of Thirds... a visual technique that can improve the power of your images by moving the subject off center. Reynolds dissects recent travel videos from Australia and New Zealand to show how they use the technique to great effect.

(*) I used a number of the techniques outlined in Presentation Zen for my recent talk at the Where2.0 conference, and it was very well received. Thanks Garr!
