ACES 2016


By popular request, here is the slide show that accompanied my presentation at the 2016 American Copy Editors Society conference in Portland, Oregon. The usual caveat: I don't use PowerPoint (or do much else, for that matter) like a normal person. I put up slides to illustrate and punctuate my points, and to give the audience something to look at besides my shiny head. So you won't see bullet points spelling out everything I said. There is a fair amount of text, but in some cases you'll have to use your imagination.

Thanks, Bill. Fantastic presentation. You had us laughing and thinking at the same time. --Bev Rilett

That wacky puppet or toy at the top of each of the slides distracted me. However, thanks for posting your slides.

Thanks, Deb. (That's a doughnut, by the way. A Voodoo Doughnut!)

I did not partake, but such comestibles were immensely popular at the conference. I can only assume that's because of the establishment's rigorous adherence to AP style on what others call "donuts."
