- Do you ever wonder why they call them bullet points?
- Is it a not-so-subtle attempt to tell us the truth?
- They’re trying to KILL us!
Sorry. I’m overreacting. I’m not aware of anyone who’s died from a PowerPoint presentation. Yet!
Ed Brenegar sent me a link to this – Dick Hardt’s Identity 2.0 Presentation from O’Reillys OpenSource event earlier this year. Clean, crisp, fast, fun. You bullet-crazed PowerPoint presenters should be forced to watch it – over and over again.
I DO recommend you watch it (why else would I provide the link) – even if you could give a rip about Identity 2.0. Enjoy a masterful presentation – which probably used Keynote – Apple’s PPT competitor.
Dick thanks Stanford professor and Creative Commons advocate, Lawrence Lessig for the style. When I googled Lessig, I was led back to my favourite presenting blog – Presentation Zen. Read this post. And you can watch a great Lessig presentation here.
You might just save a life.
