“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

On Not Using PowerPoint

I seem to have weaned myself off of it. Hyperobjects talks required it, it seemed to me, because there were an awful lot of charts and information. But the latest batch of talks don't seem to need it.

I'm happy with that. Putting them together is a chore though I like what I do with that necessary constraint. And PowerPoint is notoriously fatiguing for an audience.
