Though not entirely related, this post made me think of Kathy Sierra's post on the dangers of the "glib."

The fast answer is indeed seldom the best answer.

Your engaging perspective really illuminates an important message, one that is so often overlooked.

Thank you for an excellent post!

You've probably already seen the further proliferation of this meme: http://www.boingboing.net/2006/07/23/best_series_of_tubes.html

After reading this, I decided to use Ted Stevens "lecture" in my writing class to show my students what to avoid when constructing an argument. The students loved it, and I could see them thinking back to their own work to see if their own ideas were just as incoherent - which fortunately they weren't. But it made for a great object lesson about the importance of coherence and structure in our communication. Thanks for leading me to this little gem.

Slightly OT, but I am dying to know how you are creating those awseome paper cuts on the slides?
