Poor PowerPoint

The Army’s dissing it and so is Seth Godin.

Look, here’s the simple truth about a PowerPoint presentation. It’s a story-telling tool. If you have no “story” — no beginning, middle and end — PowerPoint will make you look like an idiot, no matter how you use it. If, however, you do have a story, any tool of the software you use — yes, even bullets — will be just fine.

The software isn’t the problem; it’s the story-telling.


  1. Wait, you mean the absence of story is NOT mitigated by the presence of spinning, crossfading, or bouncing bullet points? Thus bursteth my bubble. 😉
