More on PowerPoint Breakups

Vincent Marianiello, on his blog My Hypertextual Life, takes the idea put forth in my article The Breakup Style of PowerPoint (whose name is based on Tufte’s The Cognitive Style of PowerPoint) and runs with it:

PowerPoint slide reading 'I think we need to talk. It's important.'

Go check out Vincent’s “breakup” slides. They have this “funny because it’s true” quality. I know a couple of guys who fit the dumpee’s description perfectly.

(By the bye, Vincent’s not the only one who’s quoted my slides — David Byrne’s been using them as examples of intentionally funny PowerPoint.)
