Hi Constance,
The updated slide deck looks great! Nice job!  I have a few suggestions:

1) The Plone logo should maybe be left off the slides that already have
graphics, as it seems to compete for attention on those slides, or maybe
just move the logo flush right and make it a bit smaller.

2) On slide 6, you might want to say something about Plone working in all
major browsers (cross-browser) and that the javascript gracefully degrades
for browsers that don't have javascript or CSS enabled. You could also
mention that Plone supports OpenID for authentication.

3) On slide 8, you might want to mention that Plone has had very few CVE
entries and that Zope is pursuing Common Criteria certification for Zope 3.

4) On slide 10, i think the 50 languages is an overstatement and it's
actually something like 35 or so.

5) On slide 12, I would put "how-tos and tutorials" on one line and "on
plone.org" on the next line for better readability.

6) On slide 14, it would be more visually interesting to show a world map
with pins representing each of the 282 providers. This would really
demonstrate Plone's global reach more dramatically than simply a number and
some words.
Does anyone want to attempt to make such a map? Perhaps using Jarn's Maps
product? http://plone.org/products/maps

7) On slide 15, I'm not sure if it's such a good idea to use all those
corporate logos without getting expressed written permission first. Many
corporate legal depts are have quite strict policies in regards to use of
their corporate identity.
We should probably play it safe and just list the names of the orgs. Perhaps
3 columns with samples from each sector: edu, ngo, biz

The last slide might be a "For more info" slide with helpful links to
resources (plone.org, plone.net, plone.tv) and more info about the local
Plone user group (if there is one in the area).
