Does anyone know of research (formal or otherwise) on the effects of Power
Point formatting on emerging writing styles, logical argumentation skills,
or comprehension? I'd be grateful for any data for (or against) the current
adage that "Power corrupts but Power Point corrupts absolutely."

With thanks,
