How many PowerPoint or Keynote slides should you have?
I am continually asked this question by people from all over the world. I used to have a rule of thumb for this, but once I saw Solomon Hykes deliver 44 slides in under 4 minutes, I changed my tune. Now, my answer to this question is always, "How many do you need?" Here is the presentation that Solomon Hykes, CEO from dotCloud.com did at GigaOM Structure conference. Unfortunately, you cannot see the slides because of the way they filmed the event. But, there were 44 of them and he won 1st place against the 11 other companies. Well done Solomon!
