Death by powerpoint

I was in Sydney for a conference earlier this week. What struck me most, other than the IT/AV technical hiccups, was the overuse of powerpoint for many of the presentations.

It's something I've been thinking a out for a while, but having had to sit through a few of them, I'm now convinced that powerpoint does not make for better presentations. Time to chuck away the crutches and dance up a storm on stage, folks.

Thank you to Derek K Miller ( for articulating what I've been thinking:
The story. The story. The story. Tell your story. The tools are secondary.
And thanks Derek, for also pointing me to Darren Barefoot's zen art of designing good presentations. Wow.
