Help me out, bud. I'm still lacking some important information here. In what
context would this information be presented? Is it for an audience in a lecture
or seminar setting or for a reader of a user's guide OR _fill in your favoriute
audience here_? (I mean ALL writing involves presentation of a sort, right?)
Is the information broad, or does it define key concepts? Can the presentation
be performed using an electronic medium?
