: : How about a business application that's also a game.
: : How about a doom clone, that's got a really easy texture/room editing

: : walk through your presentation and keep the audience awake? The same

: : What do you think?
Would be cool. Really. Only the one thing to make sure is that the engine
(with effects and stuff) is not going to become the biggest part of the
presentation. Make sure that the things which matter (results, conclusions
etc) are clearly understandable.
: I think that businesspeople often don't respect stuff that isn't

Hmmm. Dunno about this one. I am studying Logistics and Business Management
(so I am to become one of those businesspeople :) and when you have seen a
few presentations with awful but authoritative sheets, you've had enough
and you really want something different. My project team has done a
computer presentation and they really liked it. (They=management team of a
large store-chain De Bijenkorf here in Holland)
: I've often wondered about the desktop GUI that simply refuses to sit
: still, but is more interested in its own charming antics, and argues
: with you about how the desktop should be laid out. "No no, the menus
: are supposed to stick out _siedeways_, and the elements are supposed
: to zigzag up and down. Like this." Or "don't look at that file.
: Look at this one! With _this_ viewer."
So it opens up stuff when you don't want to? :) Like loading WP for Windows
when you're in DOS-mode playing DukeNukem 3d? No way....:)
: Just think of it as "GUI's in Wonderland." :-)
