Death by Powerpoint

This article about the prolific use of PowerPoint in the American military amused the hell out of me.  Perhaps that is why we are not “winning the war” in Afghanistan?  No one knows what the hell they are supposed to do!

Check out the insanely complex slide at the top of the page.

Perhaps they should use this beautiful zooming presentation tool instead?

I would laugh my butt off if I found out that Al Qaeda were using Open Office or Prezi.  The absurdity of it would reduce it to a conflict of technologies not ideologies.  Microsoft versus open source/freeware.  There’s only one way to solve that problem…a five minute presentation from each side with a public vote at the end.  I’ll get my coat…
