A Learning Object with Real World Examples

2-D or not 2-D? (That is the question)Steve_jobs
We can learn how to be better presenters by observing the masters. I often say, for example, that we can improve our presentations by emulating certain aspects of Steve Jobs' presentation style. Today, though, I'd like to talk about one aspect of Steve's presentation Tuesday that we can learn from by not emulating. And that is the use of 3-D charts to represent 2-D data.

Presentation Zen: 2-D or not 2-D? (That is the question)

This is so unbelievable to me. Garr Reynolds just blogged about the presentation style and use of 2-D and 3-D charts from Steve Job's keynote today. This is a learning object, developed in a couple of hours, maybe less, and published for all to see. It is getting better as visitors post comments and dicsuss, it has a stated objective, great visual examples, and all we have to do is take it back to our real world and try it out. This is learnin2.0 or whatever you want to call it. This is how you leverage ease-of-use (although I don't know what it took to create it), social networking, instant publishing, and whatever other web2.0 concepts you can think of. Cool.
