Scott McCloud, King of Powerpoint

Scott McCloud's 2005 TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) Talk has now been posted. I had a chance to see him give a version of this constantly evolving talk at the BGSU Comic Book in Popular Culture Conference in October and was glad I did. Not only is it quite a good summary of McCloud's ideas about comics, but it's one of the best Powerpoint presentations I've ever seen. I also like the way he weaves in his family history and biography. (This video will be of definite interest to the students in the Contemporary Graphic Novels seminar.)
