Via Huffington Post comes this link to Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, as rewritten for our Powerpoint era. Writes NYU Economics Prof William Easterly , with tongue firmly in cheek, “While the speech has gained considerable notice already, it would have been even more successful if Dr. King had two things that have vastly improved in the last 47 years: (1) presentation software, and (2) the evocative jargon used by “social entrepreneurs” trying to change things. Using my expert knowledge of these two areas, I was able to improve the “Dream” speech considerably in this Powerpoint presentation.”
