Which Compliment Do You Want?

Recently, at a conference, I noticed a big difference between compliments.

After my presentation, several people gave me compliments on my inspiring message and my simple and clear drawings. I was grateful for that. And I was glad that I had achieved my goal.

I also overheard people complimenting another speaking on the stunning animations that he created with prezi.com, with rotating words and sliding bubbles. But I noticed people were not talking about his message.

Which compliment do you want?
What is your goal?

Are you trying to make people think about your message?

Or are you trying to send new users to prezi.com?

p.s. This is not a rant against prezi.com or animations. In Toy Story 3 animations seem to work quite well.
