Interactive presentations

At my latest YAPC talk I used questions to the audience to make sure that everything is understood. That does not mean that I asked 'do you understand it' - but rather I asked 'how would you estimate this or that' - and then I extracted from the answers the generic strategies that I had prepared to talk about. This worked spectacularly well and I think I'll add it to all my presentations.
