PowerPoint Kills

I have discovered that I actually have a medically proven allergy to PowerPoint presentations. As soon as I come within metres of one, my skin gets all hivey and blotchy, my heart palpitates, my gag reflex goes in to overdrive, and I just need to leave the room. Urgently.

I think it's the combination of all that clip art, bad stock photos, graphs, horrible jargon language, mission statements and schizophrenic font usage.

Like any useful tool, PowerPoint can be dangerous if placed in the wrong hands (ie, just about anyone who works in an office).

But it doesn't have to be that way.

When I was at uni in 3rd year we (design students) had to do a marketing unit in the business school. The poor old lecturer went bananas with power point, maybe to impress us. It was hilarious.
