Yet More on PowerPoint

More PowerPoint posts continue to catch my eye.  The first is from Brad Fled, a venture capitalist who has recently invested in NewsGator,  Brad writes:

I’ve looked at thousands (tens of thousands?) presentations pitching new businesses since the mid 1990’s. The vast majority of them suck. Unfortunately, it’s not Powerpoint’s fault (no – it wouldn’t be better if Freelance has become the standard).

Brad points us to:

 Edward Tufte – a master of The Visual Display of Quantitative Information, thinks Powerpoint is evil and corrupts absolutely

He also gives us a good outline presentation for pitching to a VC, which is definately worth checking out if you ever have the need.  In fact its a good start if you need to make a pitch for any kind of investment.
