In defense of PowerPoint


Nice PowerPoint in defense of PowerPoint.  Thanks to Ed at I would guess he’s a lover. This is the same argument that the NRA makes. It isn’t the gun that’s the problem (although I am not sure I am on the same side in that debate).

Just a note – this is a great example of a flashcard type of PowerPoint. Ideal for blog postings and Slideshare, when you aren’t there in person, and need the deck to make all the points for you.

  1. Good presentation on the absurdity of blaming PowerPoint for bad presentations – also, as you pointed out, good example of “flashcard” PowerPoint.
    On the other hand, I’m not sure “laziness” is the problem – I’ve seen people spend intense weeks on bad presentations… Maybe intellectual laziness.
