The universe works in funny ways. You see, earlier today an e-mail message when out to a large number of people at work. It said something like this:
If you create power point presentations then get ready to be very excited . . . we have a new Corporate template for you to use on all of your presentations!
I am not making this up.
There was no smiley. It was a serious message.
Not only could I not find anything in that message to "be very excited" about, it made me sort of sad. I had the sudden urge to fill out a TPS report or something.
But it turns out that I'm not alone. You see, over at FastCompany, we learn that PowerPoint is:
- among mankind's worst inventions, ever
- the largest single source of useless crap within companies
I couldn't have said it better myself.
