Powerpoint is Evil

I used Tufte's piece in my own PPT presentation, which as folks on Twitter know, has almost 80 slides. I've described it as being sort of like "The Word" on The Colbert Report. Will this work? Who knows. Still tweaking. But I printed my boarding passes. If you're on Facebook, I'm now having a contest to guess how many gratuitous pop culture references I make in the forty minute speech. Go on, have a guess.

24. (Is it worth bribing you to fix the contest?)

LOL -- I worded it poorly both here and on Facebook I meant to get people to name the gratuitous pop culture references, but perhaps I shall have to amend my my expectations as people have given me numbers. Number that I expect are probably low ;-)

Bribes are always cheerfully accepted.
