So are Google Jockeys information pimps, or ho-s? I'm confused...

What does the audience do, read the screen? Who reads text on a data projector screen? Do you need a secretary to take minutes, to prepare and disseminate a bibliography?

Maybe it only works with pictures...but aren't there copyright issues in doing this in the classroom?
