Subject: RE: [teknoids] BAD PowerPoint slides

I don't have any examples to contribute, but my biggest gripe about
Power Point slides concerns the speaker who reads them to the audience.
It may be just me, but I find this subtly insulting. Does the speaker
think his/her audience is illiterate? Further, the slides should just
enhance the message not substitute for it. Otherwise, the speaker could
just set the PP on auto advance and go off and have coffee...
