The US vice president gets the Oscar
Coming soon: At 4 pm 40 in Central Europe, speaker and comedian Jerry Seinfeld, after presenting four nominated documentary films, summons a man who once self-deprecatedly presented himself at a congress as near-miss of the United States of America: ex-vice president Al Gore.
Together with his producer Davis Guggenheim he receives the Oscar for best documentary film. This Al Gore, who was notorious for making wooden speeches and boring presentations at the height of his political career, gets an Oscar for a film that is nothing more than a filmed speech, a presentation: "An inconvinient truth", the appeal to the Humanity to stop global warming.
Far from the everyday template terror
How did he do that, Mr. Gore? By being admirably creative. By showing pictures that made it clear in the before-and-after effects how much the earth has changed dramatically within a few years.
In which he has used PowerPoint supportive and put himself in the center. So far from everyday template terror. There are other exciting examples. In this context, I would like to invite you to an unusual mind game: Imagine Jesus Christ supporting his Sermon on the Mount with bar charts. Or the well-known Kasperle, who turns out to be a frustrated speaker and puts an end to a slide - with the theater.
Mountain Sermons 2015: The Lord Presents
My God, there must have been something going on. "When Jesus saw the many people, he climbed a mountain. He sat down, and his disciples came to him. Then he began to speak and taught them ... "Matthew Gospel reports. That is why the Sermon on the Mount is called: The hill served as a stage! But already the evangelist Luke must have seen the whole story clearly different - probably he himself stood on an even higher mountain and judged from above.
Because in his Gospel the lecture is suddenly called "Feldrede". Be it on the mountain or in the field, this sermon is the first PR-effective presentation of the Son of God. He uses a wealth of metaphors to place his messages. Would he have given even more emphasis to the radiance of his words, if he could have used the beamer? The Beamer sermon - very, very free after Matthew - shows it.
Are you all gone? Appearance for the abdication!
Even if the Kasperle in professional life always the cheerful Saubermann, private and backstage looks now completely different: the behind the curtain turns out to be the guy as a bad-tempered connoisseur, who has the pronounced nose full of these dolls. Since the multi-media age itself has attracted the youngest target groups between three and six years from the theater to the tablet, the top hat has been blowing at half-mast.
The famous introductory question: "Are you all there?" Is answered more and more often with "Nope!" And "Tri-Tra-Trullala" is meanwhile only a lulling sign of acute alcoholism of the performing guild. No wonder then that ex-star Kasperle has to take a deep breath now. Having spent the last 200 years of his career without PowerPoint, he has now bowed to a so-called change process and turned on the projector. Layer in the pit with the Punch and Judy!
Cave presentation instead of hell lecture
Innovative people are often reassured that they do not have to reinvent the wheel. Pretty idea. But what should the ladies and gentlemen inventors do then before many 1000 years, when the wheel had not yet been developed? They had to reinvent it. Problem: You did not register it at the patent office - because that was not yet invented.
Round 8000 years later - in the year 2001 - the Australian patent attorney John Keogh took advantage of this and filed a patent for the wheel. He called it "Circular Transport Facility". Somehow funny, but seriously meant: The lawyer wanted to denounce the lax patent laws of the continent with this application. As the lawyer has presented his idea, you can look at the website of the Australian Patent Office. And just as the primeval human innovators got the idea of "cycling" running, you can discover it as well.
