One of the few bad parts of Lotusphere is that the slide templates, for want of a better word, "suck". They do not suck in so much as how they try to have content laid out. They suck in how they are used by the speakers because of forced constraints.
There is nothing worse than sitting in the back of a dark session room, and the speaker has tried to cram so many bullet points on to one slide, they cannot be seen. The speaker says "as you can see in this bullet point" or "in this line of code", yet the users do not have binoculars. So attendees bury their heads into the downloaded slides, and miss speaker added content.
So I am suggesting that IBM bring the templates into the 21st century so that attendees can see better. If not, add High Def Monitors in the larger session rooms so that the slides can be seen on them as well.
