Edward Tufte hates the MS Office app that’s taken over nearly every meeting I’ve ever been to where lots of information is being conveyed. What are his points?
- Dumbing down data is bad
- Conveying ideas in bullet format is bad
- PP is making our children dumber
- Simplifying data presentation actually makes it messier to present
I might actually even agree with him. I’m sick of PowerPoint presentations. And I like that he used the word “smarmy.”
