That was a really good article. Now we need one for how to be a good audience member at a presentation. I've given quite a few presentations and I find it obnoxiously rude when people have their laptops on in front of them and are busy on IRC, checking email or whatever.
If the presenter has spent 15 hours preparing his/her talk, the least you can do is refrain from futzing with your laptop for one hour. If it's really so important to check your email, do everyone a favour and leave the room.
If I had my way, I would introduce a wifi-jamming device during presentations for forcibly disconnect devices from the Internet. :)
