Garr Reynolds on the Slideument

Garr Reynolds commenting on a PowerPoint deck on Hillary's electability sent to House Democrats. I love the term slideument to describe a printed PowerPoint slideshow intended to be read as a document.
Presentation Zen: Hillary Campaign sends "docu-point" to House Dems:
Nine slides, approximately 275 words, one table, three bar charts, and two pie charts. Why not just write a proper, concise, well-designed document and send it as a PDF? Unfortunately, sending this kind of docu-point/slideument as a quick alternative to a well-crafted paper or handout, etc. is all too familiar.
