A political party to combat PowerPoint presentations?   Read on:

“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

We contend it’s not PowerPoint, but misuse of the program by presenters, that is the root of this problem.  Screens packed with text are boring and incomprehensible.
