Al Gore's presentation style

I of course have a personal interest in the subject matter of An Inconvenient Truth, but I was also fascinated by the idea of a compelling PowerPoint presentation - I tend to hate the tool, if only because it's so badly used so many times. (I even own a copy of Edward Tufte's "The Cognitive Style of PowerPoint".) So this Presentation Zen post on Al Gore's quality use of PowerPoint was quite inspiring as a reminder that it's possible to use PowerPoint as something compelling - as long as one refrains from bullet points overloaded with text and information!

Not sure if the film's coming to Singapore, but I'll be getting the DVD once it's out.

PowerPoint Does Rocket Science

fyi he uses keynote instead of pp
