Luigi pointed me to an article on The Inquirer1 saying "kinda sick but they have a point", and he's not wrong. The article says PowerPoint carries some of the blame for the Columbia shuttle crash. Even more interesting is the great Edward Tufte's analysis2 of the slide in question, which I see was posted in March 2003. So what, I wonder, woke the New York Times (The Inquirer's source) to cover it now?
