How to Blog a Talk

Blogging about your own presentations is tough. Some people post their slides, but slides are not essays, and often make little sense without the speaker.

I really like what Chris Hoff did in his blog post, “Security and Disruptive Innovation Part I: The Setup.”


I did something similar after “Security Breaches Are Good for You: My Shmoocon talk.” I posted a PDF of the slides. I think the PDF is less effective, because you can’t skim it, search it, or excerpt it as easily as with Hoff’s HTML version.

Nice work, Chris!

  • Thanks Adam.
    I was struggling with how to make sure that things would make sense. As I improve my slideware and they become talking points, sometimes they are difficult to “get” without a narrative.
    I think this worked out OK.
    Thanks a bunch.
