Last summer, I worked on a conversion of Lessig's slides for the web. Leonard Lin did all the work, but the final product was worth it, and about as close to a live Lessig presentation as you can get:

Up front I will say that I also lean towards Hornick's advice to be economical when crafting a business pitch aimed at VCs. The reality however is that one of the most frequent requests from a VC after hearing a pitch (other than 'we'll discuss it and get back to you') is please 'send me the pitch so I can share it with my partners.' Let's face it, the Hornick approach is great for an in person presentation, but terrible for a pitch that must make its points when the entrepreneur is not in the room.

Painfully few realize there should be two distinctly different sets of slides for two possibile events: 1) you are presenting live to audience and your slides are supporting materials; and, 2) your slides are doing the talking; you have no interaction with your audience.

One simple solution (just short of composing two presentations) is to include your script in the speaker's note portion of the slide. Then, when it comes to distributing a reading copy, print the "speaker's notes view" to paper or, better yet, to a PDF. Either way, you give them more context for better comprehension.

Hearing spoken text and looking at graphics is best way to promote user recall, according to the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (http://www.humanfactors.com/downloads/july98.asp ). An in-person presentation is best, but printed text plus graphics is not necessarily a doomed alternative.
