Guilty. I confess. (BRILLIANT anti-powerpoint rant…in slideshow form)

I’ve done this too, I admit. (OMG, slide 22!).

Please, if you’ve ever presented at a conference or taught a class, you need to see this slideshow. It’s hysterical and, as is often the case with Rebecca Schuman’s work, absolutely on point.

The thing is, I find whenever I have to write on the board in a lecture setting, it slows me down so incredibly that I never get through my material–when I time my talks, I always tend to time them by how long it takes me to¬†talk the talk, not how long it takes my atrophied and ill-accustomed-to-actual-handwriting little left hand to squeeze the words out and onto a board. But…then I fall into these traps. A lot of them, actually.

Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.
