6 What PowerPoint does well: Graphical annotation Speed gets higher near the calving face

7 What PowerPoint does well: Graphical annotation Speed gets higher near the calving face, with a maximum below the water line

8 What PowerPoint does well: Graphical annotation An area of compression forms at the surface near the calving face

9 What PowerPoint does well: Graphical annotation An area of compression forms at the surface near the calving face, changes to a strong maximum behind just below water line

10 What PowerPoint does well: Graphical annotation An area of compression forms at the surface near the calving face, changes to a strong maximum behind just below water line, at the height of the velocity maximum

11 What PowerPoint does well: Graphical annotation Greater lateral drag does not change the character of the longitudinal stress near the calving face

18 PowerPoint resolution issues PowerPoint slides hold a limited number of lines with a limited number of (legible) words. PowerPoint images are still significantly lower resolution than projected slides, although usually brighter. Serifed fonts may be fuzzy when projected. Your audience will read ahead — what am I saying while you’re reading this?

19 Busy backgrounds Animated transitions, sounds One-at-a-time bullet points Large titles and annotations that limit the size of graphics Logo/Letterhead icons on every slide Camouflage to avoid

20 Slides with letterhead items, logos, and CYA notices may leave little space for information. The graphics in this presentation were prepared in support of an oral presentation, and cannot be considered complete without the accompanying oral discussion. Presentation for ENSC April 2010

21 PowerPoint presentation issues Transitions are overdone. PowerPoint is not a teleprompter. PowerPoint will steal an audience’s attention. Everybody hates bullet slides.

22 1870s, “Magic Lantern” slides for projection 1930s, Slide projectors for the two-inch slide. 1960s, 3M Overhead transparency projectors 1982, Computerized storyboard editors. 1987, PowerPoint 1.0 (Macintosh only). 1990, Portable computers become “notebook” sized. 1990, Purchase of PowerPoint by Microsoft and incorporation into Office suite. 1990s, Practical LCD projectors, transition from organizing slides to computer projection. 2001, Microsoft says that 30 million PowerPoint presentations are made each day. (They are guessing.) History

29 Make a web page. (Other people’s web sites may be incorporated in your presentation.) Make a Portable Document Format (pdf) file. Browsers for these (Acrobat Reader) have full- screen presentation modes. PowerPoint has competitors. Some (OpenOffice) are free. (The presentation you are watching was generated with Apple Keynote.) Use a handout, a blackboard (not for this class) Speak clearly and persuasively without visual help (not for this class) Other options

30 “Communicating is hard. Some can do it by drawing pictures, others by interpretive dance, oratory, cinema, or sonnets. But some can’t. Thus Powerpoint. To people who can’t communicate, it is what the dialysis machine is to people who don’t have kidneys.” — Neal Stephenson
