Scott McCloud on PowerPoint

This really isn't one of those Information Architect/Usability/Tufte worship/Interaction Design -type weblogs (even though I am kind of interested in those things), but since I've posted about PowerPoint before and am a Scott McCloud fan I thought I'd mention this short interview with Scott in which he discusses his thoughts on slides and software.

PowerPoint is merciless. It exposes our levels of apathy. If your message entirely grows out of something about which you have no interest, it’s going to show. PowerPoint will not forgive – it will expose you. It will show the true you. If your day is a tedious drone of facts and figures, I’m afraid that is what is going to hit the screen.
