eldavojohn writes “Disillusioned by PowerPoint at work? Some members of the US Military view it as “an internal threat.” Marine Corps General James N. Mattis says, “PowerPoint makes us stupid,” reaching the same conclusion NASA came to back in 2003. But nothing speaks to this more than the spaghetti-bowl PowerPoint slide of the US Military’s strategy in the ongoing war in Afghanistan. The slide causes anyone’s eyes to glaze over with confusion so much that General McChrystal jokingly stated when he saw it, “When we understand that slide, we’ll have won the war.” At my job, I know that feeling all too well.”
