Slide Decks.

For the past 7-8 years there is an underground movement against Powerpoint presentations. The message is "Powerpoint makes us stupid".

I personally like slide decks accompanying presentations especially if there are printouts for me to take notes on. But a lot of presentations I have seen have been very boring.

Slate has a very useful article on when and how to have good PPT slides. I am presenting this afternoon and some of my slides do not really comply with the best practices the article talks about. I wish I had read this earlier.
