Technology Folly

From the Not Clear on the Concept file

I went to a meeting on Saturday where there was supposed to be a PowerPoint presentation. The projector did not, however, show up.

The speaker read the slides one by one, word for word, saying, "Here in slide 3 we see the historical trends..." etc.

Adapt or die, people. Adapt or die.

to me, that is hilarious because I wasn't there. to you, I'm sure it was incredibly boring.

What I really really hate is when presenters do that (read from the slides) when they have them up on a projector. Come on, Power point is not a replacement for knowing how to communicate to an audience.

I'm sorry, I'm laughing too.

It is inexcusable. Reading your slides without adapting what you say. Sigh.

This is pretty funny Bob. What's funnier is that you all sat there when what you wanted to do is tell the boss to get the f-ing projector and call another meeting.
