The Resistable Rise of the TPS Report.

This is why I love David Byrne. (He does backflips on that thin line between irony and sincerity.):

"Byrne believes that speakers giving Powerpoint lectures are giving a performance akin to Japanese theater (mentioning the visible puppeteers in Bunraku and showing a picture of musicians in Nogaku) or Brecht in that the performance both displays the show (the powerpoint slides) together with the speaker -- thus exposing the 'behind the scenes' workings of the show."

--Doug Tygar's take on a David Byrne lecture enetitled "I Heart Powerpoint."
