Hypnotizing Chickens?

I must admit that’s a new phrase to me … but it’s a kissing cousin to “Death by PowerPoint”, it seems.

You’ll enjoy the recent NY Times article about the U.S. military use of PowerPoint slides and how numbing it’s become … witness the slide that accompanies the article and appears above. I like General McChrystal’s comment: “When we understand that slide, we’ll have won the war.”

Take heed, my friends. This is a problem we all share – and to which we’ve all probably contributed. Be sure to concentrate on the “communicating” part of the message and not just the “presentation” part!
