Tufte researches PowerPoint and reaches the conclusion that the affordances of the program lead to sloppy thinking. His arguments and examples are pretty convincing. The analysis of the Boeing slides used around the Columbia disaster is particularly disturbing. I loved his descriptions of the information density of the average PP slide: terribly low!

This short essay will make me really think twice before using PowerPoint again...
