“When Matthias Pöhm formed his new Swiss political party, he was determined to reach out to what he considered an underrepresented group. So in May, he created the Anti PowerPoint Party, whose stated mission is to advocate for those souls ‘who, every month, are obliged to be present during boring presentations in companies, universities, or at other institutions, and who had up to now no representation in politics’.” Source: New York Times, September 22, 2011
