Trevon Logan Seminar

From Trevon Logan's seminar:

"The numbers on that transparency are much too small. Don't you agree, Brad?"

"Well, Bill Easterly says that there are two kinds of transparencies: those that you want the audience to read, and those that you want to use as bludgeons to beat the audience into believing that you've done a hell of a lot of work. As the second kind of transparency, it's fine. As the first kind of transparency, it is definitely lacking."

"Brad, how did you get that number?

"By mistake.

Were these Powerpoint slides, or old style "print a few pages of my paper onto a transparency sheet" slides? Or something in between?
