I was visiting an organization that was begun by a friend of ours. He did a presentation on how it came together. The story was incredible. The Powerpoint presentation was enough to make a man ill. Every transition between slides was different. Things flew in and bounced in and weird wiped in – ’twas bloody awful. A great story being ruined by Powerpoint.
Creating Passionate Users has a smile inducing post on the world of PPT. Check them out.
And if you’re a Mac User, and you absolutely must do a "slide" presentation – use Keynote. It’s a lot more fun than Powerpoint.
