The best talk I've given involved about 80 pictures of Playmobil figures in offices dealing as best they could with mysterious XML specifications hurled down at them by a benificent (or angry?) god. The audience response, at least until the sound cut out and I'd lost my script and wandered, was the best I've ever had - by an order of magnitude or two. That said, I'm not sure I can recommend such presentations as a general rule. It was explicitly a polemic, for starters. Beyond that, it took about five times as much effort to write as my usual text-heavy slides, isn't easily re-used, and involved a large investment in small plastic toys, lighting devices, and now better camera equipment. There'll be more to come.  http://simonstl.com/articles/halfparse-smil/ (and yes, I'll have an animated HTML version up sometime too. To give you some idea of it, see http://simonstl.com/articles/halfparse2/schemas.html .)
