Slides like this should be banned from talks

Increasingly I see people show slides like this in talks.

I don't see the point.
It is just a screen dump of a publication list from a CV.
There is no pedagogical value.
It is just saying, "Look, I have published lots of papers!"
Don't do it.

  1. Just because it might be bad doesn't mean it should be banned. It has pedagogical value in demonstrating form, but no pedagogical substance. Also, most people are incapable of generating such a list - it demonstrates your skill.
