7-11-06 – I have put together a few of my favorite resources. This is a work in progress. Stay tuned.

A good (short) blog post on the pros and cons of using slides in presentations. A longer detailed discussion: “PowerPoint Presentations: the good, the bad and the ugly“.

Do NOT miss this: A brilliant take on what Lincoln’s Gettysburg address would have been like had it been presented on PowerPoint. And the author’s “Making of“.
