Pointless power

Don Norman on PowerPoint Usability. http://www.sociablemedia.com/articles_norman.htm [xBlog: The visual thinking weblog | XPLANE]

PowerPoint isæNOT the problem. The problem is bad talks, and in part, this comes about because of so many pointless meetings, where people with - or without - a point to make - have to give pointless talks. The problem is that it is difficult work to give a good talk, and to do so, the presenter has to have learned how to give talks, has to have practiced, and has had to have good feedback about the quality of the talks - the better to improve them.... Tufte misses the point completely.
