I mentioned yesterday that in January I'll be giving a presentation to my fellow editors about Web sites. Though I plan to use a laptop and projector, I will not employ Microsoft PowerPoint. Doc Searls explained why four years ago.

Okay, actually, he didn't. He showed how you could use PowerPoint effectively by not doing what it tells you to do. But I think you could do just as good a job with some Web pages called up in a browser, or an Acrobat PDF file generated from a graphics program. And those files would be a lot smaller -- you could probably carry them on a floppy disk or even put them on a Web server so you don't have to bring them with you.

In January, if I need to have any of my own stuff onscreen, I'll either make some Web pages for it, create a PDF, or (maybe best) use an overhead projector and a pen.
