Is PowerPoint Evil
I came upon a blog — I can’t find it now, I’m looking for it — that asked the question: Is PowerPoint evil?
That’s not the question.
There are actually three questions that need to be asked:
- Is PowerPoint a good tool?
- Is PowerPoint a well-used tool?
- Is PowerPoint the right tool?
I’ll address all three questions in future posts. But in brief I think it’s an adequate tool that can be used well (though it is most often used poorly) and that is the right tool for a limited number of applications (though it is frequently used for every sort of presentation.)
Before I say more, what are your thoughts?
