PowerPoint Is Evil Power Corrupts. PowerPoint Corrupts Absolutely Edward Tufte: http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/11.09/ppt2.html
Criticism of PowerPoint 1.Tufte's criticisms according to Wikipedia: 2.It is used to guide and to reassure a presenter, rather than to enlighten the audience; 3.It has unhelpfully simplistic tables and charts, resulting from the low resolution of early computer displays; 4.The outliner causes ideas to be arranged in an unnecessarily deep hierarchy, itself subverted by the need to restate the hierarchy on each slide;
Criticism of PowerPoint 4.Enforcement of the audience's linear progression through that hierarchy (whereas with handouts, readers could browse and relate items at their leisure); 5.Poor typography and chart layout, from presenters who are poor designers and who use poorly designed templates and default settings (in particular, difficulty in using scientific notation); scientific notation
Criticism of PowerPoint 6.Simplistic thinking, from ideas being squashed into bulleted lists, and stories with beginning, middle, and end being turned into a collection of disparate, loosely disguised points. This may present an image of objectivity and neutrality that people associate with science, technology, and "bullet points".

The Cognitive Style of PowerPoint: Pitching Out Corrupts Within http://www.edwardtufte.com/tufte/powerpoint Alas, slideware often reduces the analytical quality of presentations. In particular, the popular PowerPoint templates (ready-made designs) usually weaken verbal and spatial reasoning, and almost always corrupt statistical analysis. What is the problem with PowerPoint? And how can we improve our presentations?
