Transparencies? Are you kidding?

My wife is getting her Masters degree in Finance at the moment and she has to get ready for a class presentation. The teacher gave them instructions to present using ..... get this ... transparencies! What, is that correct? Her question to me was where do you do this sort of thing? Kinko's I guess. But I was just stunned that people are even still using these things? Hello ... knock, knock ... 21st century calling. Last I came across these things was in high school ('84-'88). I thought we had progressed a little further since that time. Oh well. Here is some of that for you if you want the memory:

Note: I had to remove the images as they were being downloaded that often from the other site. Sorry.

Regarding the first photo you posted...

Aside from Abraham Lincoln sitting in the front and the camouflaged laptop, you've got to love the guy passed out on the far left. The course material must be riveting.

Yep, I still see transparencies in several colleges and some churches. Oh, and at some presentations at some non-profits I work with. It just makes me cringe.

nah - the guys just going "oh my god - transPAREncies!"

BTW I believe Don Box used a transparency at PDC - that he kept doodling on and then clearing off. Something like one at least.
