“Power corrupts; PowerPoint corrupts absolutely.”
Gosh, I just loathe PowerPoint. In the last ten seminars I have attended, almost every single one gave us handouts of the PowerPoint slides and then proceeded to drone on reading directly from the slides. Yes I can read apparently only at the second grade reading level. (and so apparently were the other hundred or so other people who attended. ) The last really good seminar I attended with PowerPoint in attendance was great, the presenter used bullet points and graphs and then proceeded to give us an hour and halfs worth of information, all of which we could actually use, understand and apply, without being feed pablum that was just being repeated ad nauseam. Me thinks said presenter may have read Edward Tufte’s books.
