From Blog to Book – Beyond Bullets
Hats off to fellow blogger Cliff Atkinson, who has just published a book called Beyond Bullet Points. Cliff and his company, Sociable Media, consult on PowerPoint and presentations and have a great theory about how to do great presentations.
They follow the “clear, simple, and please God not so boring” guidelines espoused by a number of us in the business world, including Brad and of course Seth. (BTW, if you haven’t read Seth’s e-book/treatise on Really Bad PowerPoint, you should do that as well, although I can’t find a link to it at the moment.)
One of the coolest parts of the book is that it really started out as Cliff’s blog, Beyond Bullets, then got Microsoft’s attention, then became a book. What a great demonstration of old and new media reinforcing each other!
