More Death By Powerpoint

I use Powerpoint at my day job on a daily basis. It's the same old, same old. Bullet points, graphs, spreadsheets, needless animation, presenters reading their slides, etc., etc. I always recommend to people that "less is more" and using less text slides and more pictures and videos are better. I posted a great video on this subject called Life After Death by PowerPoint by Don McMillan several months ago here and this video follows a similar humorous track.

Brain Rule #10: Vision trumps all other senses. The average PowerPoint slide has 40 words. Use pictures and don't kill your audience with bullets.
