Powerpoints Suck

Seriously:

But for Frommer, precisely because it simplifies and reduces everything to bullet points, it easily hides the emptiness of propositions behind buzzwords and provides visual distractions and quick changes that don’t give the audience a chance to critically examines the ideas or proposals presented to them.

Pretty much sums up everything I hate about them.  But of course teachers almost always use them now. It drives me insane.  I swear they suck the energy out of the room and kill discussion entirely.  I wish I could read the book, but I don’t know any french.

I dunno why exactly I’m putting this here.  I just thought it was a really interesting analysis.
