Is Powerpoint Truly Evil - or Just a Crutch?

PowerPoint: Killer App?, Washington Post

"But NASA -- like the rest of corporate and bureaucratic America -- seems powerless to resist PowerPoint. Just this month a minority report by the latest shuttle safety task force echoed the earlier concerns: Often, the group said, when it asked for data it ended up with PowerPoints -- without supporting documentation."

Editor's note: Wouldn't it be something if NASA engineers were forced to use complete sentences - and perhaps even paragraphs when they were called upon to explain things - instead of word streams with bullets for punctuation (in Powerpoint) where nouns and verbs often get confused.
