From BBC News - the problem with PowerPoint

I have to agree with this article completely. The best PPT I've seen is in the opening scenes of the movie 'The Da Vinci Code' where the slides are used to zoom out from images, and so presenting different views of the image to the audience and challenging their assumptions.

The article does miss the advantage of a bullet-point format that for someone reviewing a presentation later, the bullet-points can be useful.

Perhaps PPT should be thought of as providing the framework for a discussion, a vehicle for content it you like, rather than containing the actual content.
