Wanna rock an audience? Be you!

It is easy to get lost and think that pretty slides take for a better talk. They don't. What makes a good scientific talk, at least to me anyway, is that sense of awe – "Wow, it is really possible?!" – that a carefully crafted and rehearsed message (stories, explanations, open questions, problems, meaning, …) awakes in the audience. To create that awe one has to be honest, open, naked, true to oneself, or however you want to call it. Case in point, Supermodel Cameron Russell's TED talk. Enjoy!
