Unfortunately way too many presentations are crammed with text, that the
speaker then reads to the audience (I guess the speaker assumes the audience
is illiterate or blind or both).  A Good powerpoint should have no more than
3 bullet points for each slide, graphics should be used to enhance the slide
or convey information that can't be said in words.. This allows the speaker
to explain verbally what is going on.

this is an excellent essay on powerpoint
