The Evil Powerpoint...

One of the many, many examples of why I DETEST Powerpoint:


Also, check out Edward Tufte's _Wired_ article about Powerpoint:

Anyway, I had thought that I was totally alone in my intense hatred of Powerpoint--until this morning, when I saw an editorial about Powerpoint in _The Washington Post_:

I am glad to know that I am not the only person who has been brainwashed by the PP phenonomen. I feel that it is now my ethic duty to inform the world about the evils of Powerpoint. So far I've discovered that people get defensive when confronted about their PP habit. Perhaps there needs to be a new classification in the DSM-IV concerning over-dependence on PP. I think there need to be treatment facilities set up--you know, to teach people how to make effective presentations that actually convey information.
