Even if you’re President, don’t be Guilty of Death by PowerPoint

2000-08-16-2The White House has posted an “enhanced” version of the President’s State of the Union address on Slideshare. I’ve embedded it below. As PowerPoints go, the visuals are superior to what you’d see in 99% of the PowerPoints I’ve witnessed. There are some individual slides that are great at driving home a point.

But, please. Even the State of the Union adress is not worthy of a 170-slide deck. Who does the President think he is? Larry Lessig, circa 2005??

There is only great Presidential Powerpoint I can remember. After viewing a few of President Obama’s PowerPoint slides below, click here to see the most powerful President PowerPoint of all time.
