Fellow presentation enthusiast Nicole Gugger recently posted an article (in German) defending PowerPoint against all the boilerplate criticism. Bashing PowerPoint is popular. It has almost become a meme. Yet, as Nicole points out, they are aiming at the wrong target: Not the tool is to blame but the person using it.
I found it funny that she has now been "challenged" to a sort of duel by another presentation coach. He suggested that she'd do a couple of presentations in PowerPoint and he'd do the same with only a flip chart - and then let people decide which one is better.
While that sounds like a fun thing to do, it completely misses the point of Nicole's article.
