greg.org has an interesting, eccentric post on powerpoint as a creative medium.
I totally, absolutely relate to it.
I spent the the past one week obsessing over a presentation that I finally made this morning. Rest of my life ground to a halt while I was thinking about it. This is usual whenever I have an important presentation ahead of me. Mind you, I was not working on it all the time. Mostly, I was simply fretting about it and debating internally about rephrasing a particular bullet point or simplifying a Vision diagram. I NEVER wake up early. This morning I was originally up at 4.30 AM. This is not normal.
I love the quality of Matt Jones' slides.
