Presenting Gates vs Jobs: A study in contrasts

Great post comparing Steve Jobs and Bill Gates presentation styles – one that I saw mirrored at the Visual Studio launch.

Considering that Microsoft Press publishes Cliff Atkinson’s Beyond Bullet Point, it’s amazing that Microsoft still allows people to present this way. Yes, it’s hard – especially if you’re presenting online because you can’t see their faces but then again, I don’t imagine that when they’re on stage in front of 2000 developers, Bill or Steve are looking at anyone’s faces either.
