Friends & readers of this blog will know how much I detest PowerPoint, or rather the mis-use of it. I can’t say that I thought it was only a matter of time before a political party with a mission to ban PowerPoint would be formed, but via Metafilter, I’ve learned that it has, in the form of the Anti PowerPoint Party of Switzerland.
They claim – rightly in my view – that the use of PowerPoint costs the economy billions. If you could calculate human misery, you could add even more figures to that sum. I only have to see the screen and the laptop and I lose the will to live. I can tell just by the way someone holds their computer how bad their presentation will be.
