I learned about the talking stick when reading “The seven habits of effective people” from Stephan R Covey.
It’s a book I give to a lot of people with who I worked with. I’m told it’s starts a little religiously (I did not even notice it…)and it takes a while to go through the first chapters, and after that you only get good idea’s. Talking Stick is one of them.
I use this techniques when I coach teams. This was my first presentation about it.
I used Pseudo-code in my slides to stick to give it a geeky touch for BarCamp.
