[Owasp-leaders] Reusing Presentation

I have several thoughts on this issue:

	I am in the court where I actually prefer PDF over native
formats. Sometimes when I receive presentations from folks in other
countries, they may contain/use fonts that I don't have. 
	PDF sometimes keeps a history of "revisions". I have taken PPT
in the past and have seen internal information that I shouldn't have.
PDF flattens this type of information and increases security
	When it comes to presentation, we have all been known to
"borrow" content from sources. Reality says, we are probably debating
things such as ease of lifting. As long as a PDF will allow for
cut/paste of text/images, I am cool.
	I make all of my content at conferences I present at open. The
key thing though is that I have a big ego and like my own template and
would be turned off if I had to use someone elses.
	Our last OWASP chapter meeting featured Ian Glazer who is an
industry analyst for The Burton Group. His presentation was in Prezi
(http://prezi.com/) and absolutely rocked. So the assumption that we
aren't modern and have to stick to Powerpoint and God Forbid (bullets)
then OWASP is doomed. We should be up to date in not only web
application security but all forms of communication.
