I'm speaking with a company about a staff IT consulting position. One of the interview steps is to give a presentation. The exercise is only to evaluate presentation skills. As such, the presentation can be on the topic of my choosing.
Normally I'd base it on a topic more salient to the company/vertical/etc. In this case its not necessary, and, frankly, if I can spread pinball awareness how could I turn down the opportunity.
While I don't need help with presentation skills (and pinside would be an odd pace to ask if I did), what I would like from my fellow pinheads are any fun facts, stories or anecdotes, history, etc that you've found non-pinheads find particularly intriguing, funny, etc that you might include were you to develop a similar presentation.
