Has anyone given a presentation on GTD?

I am going to be giving a presentation at work on GTD in a couple months. Rather than try to start a keynote or powerpoint presentation from scratch, does anyone have one already made they would like to share? If not, maybe as a community we should work on developing a really solid presentation file.

I can't imagine davidco would have a big problem with it, since all it would do is help spread the word and you've gotta figure a few people in every audience would buy the book. Especially if we had the standard disclaimer with the file about it not being used for any kind of profit. There was that one post http://www.davidco.com/blogs/david/archives/2005/04/heads_up_for_gt.html and then merlin's response:

I'm not sure what the resolution on that was. Anyway, if anybody has a presentation they would like to share, let me know. Or if anyone wants to collectively work on it - speak up.

Chrome, is that advanced workflow...

Chrome, is that advanced workflow diagram the one by Scott Moehring? I have that from before, but now to download it from the davidco site, I think you have to register or something. Which is weird, I've never seen a free thing like that which you need to add to a shopping cart. Any changes from the rev 2/27/04 version?

I don't know about any changes as I downloaded it less than a month ago.

I'll have to figure out some kind of disclaimer that it would only be for nonprofit use, because I don't need any headache about copyright.

I don't think I'd worry about it too much, except saying something to the effect that these ideas are generally taken from the book Getting Things Done by David Allan, and that you in no way are compensated for this or seeking compensation except to create a more productive environment and create an open discussion in which more productive techniques may be developed.

Or something like that. :)

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
