Switzerland’s anti-PowerPoint party

Switzerland’s anti-PowerPoint party

Finally, a party I can get behind:

The party is called the APPP. Yes, the Anti-PowerPoint Party. It’s an organization that has, at its core, the firm belief that the Microsoft presentation software is a waste of fine Swiss resources.

Indeed, it believes that PowerPoint costs Switzerland 2.1 billion Swiss Francs (about $2.5 billion) every year. You will, no doubt, be desperate to learn of its mathematical model. Well, it says 11 percent of Swiss people have to attend PowerPoint presentations on average twice a week. At each of these presentations is a minimum of 10 people.

As Tom Ricks has reported, if such a movement were imported to the United States, it would have the enthusiastic backing of some of our top military commanders
