There are others who see PowerPoint for what it is: a support player for the main event - you! Ironically, it’s the latter group that often makes more use of Powerpoint’s rich feature set and gets more from the tool. These are presentations you do remember and applaud.
I can remember delivering presentations using photographic slides mounted in a carousel, so I’m not about to knock a tool that makes the whole process more flexible and efficient. But convenience can make us lazy.
