Everyone Hates PowerPoint, so Why Do We Use it?

September 23, 2016
  • PowerPoint is dumb
  • Slides are the worst way to engage an audience
    • But they are low effort
  • People often think in bullet points and slides are conducive towards that
  • Slide decks are pre-organized notes that can be given out after the fact
    • So you don’t have to pay attention
  • Building a slide deck signals, “I AM PREPARED THIS IS IMPORTANT I AM IMPORTANT”
  • Working on a slide deck is a dodge to get out of doing real work
  • Slides present the illusion of consensus
