Noel (who runs Linux on his desktop machine) sent a couple of interesting links today:
- Many many useful Macintosh applications, most free.
- How Steve Jobs prepares for his "reality distortion field" keynote speeches. I've added the link to my rants at penmachine.com/ powerpoint.
Jobs is, of course, probably the best business presenter in the world. My favourite line from author Mike Evangelist (his real name), who used to work for Apple and appeared onstage as part of Steve's keynotes on several occasions: "[the process] makes me think of a magnifying glass used to focus the power of the sun on one small spot until it bursts into flames." Not exactly the words very many people would choose to say about preparing for your typical PowerPoint snoozefest.
