Humor Can Help End PowerPoint Abuse

Comedian Don McMillian‘s 2008 skit, “Life After Death By PowerPoint” (4 min, 24 sec) is a favorite video of mine to share with pre-service education students learning how to use images effectively in the “Presentation Zen” style of Garr Reynolds.

Yesterday, thanks to a tweet from Stuart Ciske, I learned Don has a revised version of his humorous skewering of PowerPoint abuse: “Life After Death by Powerpoint 2010.” Enjoy!

I’ve included this as a recommended video in the “Images” chapter of “Playing with Media: simple ideas for powerful sharing.” I’m planning to publish the ePUB ebook version on July 4th. If you haven’t already, please “like” the Facebook page I’ve setup for the book to stay updated!
