I recently presented a talk at DrupalCon Paris titled, "45 Modules in 45 Minutes: The Best Modules You're Not Using".
I hand-picked 45 modules that were not among the top 100 most downloaded modules from Drupal.org for the period of June 21 - August 16, 2009.
Here's a quick snippet from the presentation:

Good job on your presentation/slides and thanks for sharing them. In regards to theming, you might want to have a look at the Skinr module:
It aims to help make theming a little more modular by allowing people to define and reuse styles covering the functionality of Block Theme and Block Class modules and more. From the module description page:
