Maybe we need a "How to give a presentation" presentation.
But who has a big enough head to actually give a talk like that?? :-)

There is a challenge in limiting a presentation to 1 hour.  Most people
think it would be a challenge to fill 1 hour, but once you get rolling,
you realize time flies pretty quick when you're up front.  It takes
some skill to fit everything into 1 hour.

On the other hand, once people try it, and the hour blitzes by so quickly,
maybe it won't be so bad and more people would be willing to volunteer
presentations.
