JessyInk (Presentations) Sami Wagiaalla's Blog. I have recently discovered jessyink.
Jessyink is an inkscape extention which allows you do create presentation slides in inkscape, save them as svg, and display them using firefox. I think that when you start your presentation in inkspace instead of OpenOffice Impress, it puts your mind in a more graphical mode. This mindset helps you create slides which are more graphical and less verbose/text heavy/bullet-pointy. I found this excellent tutorial which helped me get started with jessyink.
Each layer will be converted into one slide of a presentation.
