Powerpoint Karaoke

Delivering random presentations from the internet is an idea I've heard and discussed a couple of times as past time activity at scientific workshops. We never actually went as far as selecting the slide shows and presenting them though. Now, after visiting a public show recently, I realized that Powerpoint Karaoke is both good fun and useful training and recommended activity for retreats or a night with the department's beamer in the seminar room.
Powerpoint Karaoke (by Riesenmaschine.de)
You need to prepare a selection of slide shows (filetype:ppt in Google and a random keyword works for me) but that should be good fun already. Agree on or impose a voting system, the less objective, the better, just to make sure that people don't take it overly seriously.

Black seminar

We call them black seminars. We did it once in a group party. Everyone prepared a slide show (mostly not science related images) and each one randomly selected one to present. It is a lot of fun actually although it may sound geeky if you try to explain it.

Thought that the idea might have been implemented by one or the other group of geeks out there. Guess it had to be a black seminars after the pink seminars are already taken (excuse the Emblish).

...perfect for the retreat tomorrow

Sounds great! I will make a proposal to have a Powerpoint Karaoke session at our biocomputing retreat tomorrow. Cheers.

I first heard of this from Suzi Lewis

she's organised Genome Karaoke at the CSHL Genome Informatics conference a few times, I believe

John Day-Richter (developer of OBO-Edit) is particularly good at it, perhaps because he's a standup comic (bioinformatics is a day job...)

Is it called "Genome Karaoke"?

After I learned that Pedro's group calls it "black seminar" with a slightly different setup - are the rules for the Genome Karaoke similar and is it actually called so? I couldn't find anything online.
