A perennial dilemma of sorts happens when you’re choosing between Presentations’ Handouts and PowerPoint Presentations. Especially at the conferences.
Handouts might be easier to handle – literally – once you’ve printed them out.
On the other hand, nothing can beat the elegance of a silver screen well-crafted slides.
What I call here Takahashi-Lessig method, is actually two separate methods, called Takahashi method and Lessig method. Why do I kind of “blend” them? Because the idea behind the both is similar – do not overburden your slides. It’s not even a “one idea per slide” approach, rather, it’s one or two word(s). And a (very) large font size.
Both Masayoshi Takahashi and Lawrence Lessig techniques convey the same message of “less is more.”
But not even fanciest infographics can substitute for the person giving a speech. Because words and figures would mean little without the presenter’s charisma, his or her ability to persuade, convince, and, eventually, win over an audience.
Example? A really good one: Dick Clarence Hardt talk on Identity 2.0
