My impression of power point presentations is that they are "microsoft answers": perfectly correct, yet of no use whatever.

I wonder how many man hours [person hours? Person years??] have been wasted in meetings and Powerpoint 'presentations' that anybody not brain-dead could have flipped through in 5 minutes....not to mention day-long instruction sessions that could have been completely summarized on two pieces of paper, or sales pitches that would have taken a short paragraph and a dozen bullet points.

In my days as a corporate slave, it was plenty...and even our managers were skeptical of the whole process. I can only conclude that some upper executive type found it all entertaining and thought nobody else had anything better to do than join in the fun...

Note to self: For gosh sakes, look like you are grappling to understand the speaker's bullet points, and quit quoting dialog from Bullitt with the person sitting next to you.

PowerPoint presentations - another wonderful "innovation" for which we can thank Microsoft!

The only thing worse than a powerpoint presentation...
on Monday...with the PHB is TWO powerpoint presentations on Monday; the second to explain the first to the PHB.
