So right. I hear about the extreme misuse of PowerPoint in the federal government all the time from family members employed therein. Seeing the examples in here makes it even more alarming.

I dislike cutesy slides and boring slides both. As much as possible I try to present only salient graphics and photos. This can be challenging in teaching settings when you want to present a chart, but honestly I like to show the chart once and then draw it on the board later. I think that's probably more pedagogically useful.

Though I am ok with a picture of the presenter's cat during the question period.
