Edward Tufte: PowerPoint 的認知模式

Edward Tufte 針對 PowerPoint 的嚴厲批評

…Audiences consequently endure a relentless sequentiality, one damn slide after another. When information is stacked in time, it is difficult to understand context and evaluate relationships…At a minimum, a presentation format should do no harm. Yet the PowerPoint style routinely disrupts, dominates, and trivializes content…The practical conclusions are clear. PowerPoint is a competent slide manager and projector. But rather than supplementing a presentation, it has become a substitute for it.

我似乎在 blog 的書寫上也繼承了 ppt 的「遺毒」:遺缺、跳躍、邏輯不連貫。寫個自己看總是和寫的要與人了解,仍有一段差距。大有反省空間。PowerPoint 認知模式的海報可以從 Tufte 的網站上訂購。
