You can create awful presentations with Apple Keynote


Published on

We need to stop blaming Powerpoint. It's very easy to create bad presentations with any tool and Powerpoint is not responsible for that. I've created this bad presentation using Keynote. Hope that rests my case!

  • Hi Summit, I hardly see your point.
    Of course you can create ugly presos on Keynote, as bad as the ones create with PowerPoint or any other Slideware. The point for creating a good presentation is not the slideware, in fact the most important part of the delivery doesn't have anything to do with the slides. I've seen great presentations created on a Napkin (look for Dan Roam's works). As long as you keep your audience in mind and focus on delivering a message, not an incoherent set of slides (a.k.a. Frankenpoint) everything will be alright!

    Disclosure: I'm an Apple fanboy but use both PowerPoint and Keynote to create the visuals for my presentations.

  2. 2. I saw a pig once I was just a young boy when my family took me to the county fair. At the county fair, there were all manner of animals, including cows, horses, sheep, and goats. As we wandered through the smelly barns, examining the prize animals of the local farmers, we came upon on building that smelled far worse than any other. Holding our noses, we wandered inside. Stalls stretched far ahead on either side, and as we neared the first, we heard grunting and snorting. Sure enough, inside the stall was a pig! She was huge! Pink with black spots, large floppy ears, and a curly little tail, this pig looked right out of the story books; the really, really BIG story books! That sure was a pig I won’t forget!

Even for breakfast! Sunday 5 September 2010 11
