I read this article recently, “PowerPoint Does Rocket Science–and Better Techniques for Technical Reports” by Edward Tufte.
Read this article. Seriously, read it.
It is technical and it gets into details and isn’t constrained to just one page. It has long paragraphs. Read it anyway.
It highlights how we have come to depend on Power Point and its conventions – even when that medium or those conventions don’t work. And how, in this instance, might have led to disaster.
