The AmountaSize Virus - coming soon to a conference near you
The effect of the AmountaSize virus is described as follows: "The usefulness of a PowerPoint slide is inversely proportionate to the amount of text on the slide, complicated by the smallness of the font."
In other words, your slides become less useful and tend towards complete uselessness, as the volume of text increases with the accompanying decrease in font size.
The lesson is clear for all presenters - "Text on PowerPoint slides is your enemy." Tread carefully as you add text to your slides. Use visual images on your slides. Remember that the best content for your slides is impactful and emotional photographs on your slides, not clip art.
Don't fall prey to the AmountaSize virus. Keep fonts large and limit the amount of text on your slides.
