Speaking resources

I've been storing articles about speaking and giving talks in Pocket for a while. Most of the articles I haven't read (or have only skimmed) and I make no promises about their quality. They are presented in no particular order. I'm just sharing it in case anyone is interested.

Have other interesting articles? Let me know. Corrections welcome too.
