The Gettysburg Address – In PowerPoint Slides
Peter Norvig presents a hilarious on one side, and depressing on the other, look at Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address in PowerPoint Slides! The depressing part is how effectively it illustrates the trivialization of topics that so often happens when converted into slides for presentation. Instead of cogent ideas, effectively expressed, most devolve into a sort of idea byte mush. The cocepts end up so thoroughly sliced and diced that they effectively become meaningless.
