PowerPoint Musings
Posted by Gordon Smith

About a month ago, I posted a blurb in our sideblog, Subsidiary Thoughts, entitled "Rethinking PowerPoint." I included this bit of advice from Seth Godin: "No more than six words on a slide. EVER." Although I think Seth's advice cannot hold for most law teaching -- after all, words are our stock in trade -- I resolved to employ images to better effect in my PowerPoint presentations.

The first opportunity to test my resolve came last week, when I made several presentations at the University of Minnesota's Super CLE. Among them was this presentation of the Disney case (on the "fiduciary duty of good faith") and this presentation of the Martha Stewart case (on director independence). What do you think?

I have some reflections, but I will wait for comments. Also, note that these display much better in IE than Firefox (after all, both IE and PowerPoint are Microsoft products).
