QOTD on PowerPoint

"PowerPoint makes us stupid, " said Gen. James N. Mattis of the Marine Corps.

Brig. Gen. H. R. McMaster, in a telephone interview said about PowerPoint: "It’s dangerous because it can create the illusion of understanding and the illusion of control. Some problems in the world are not bullet-izable."

One slide in particular, packed with minute details, has made the news recently when General McChrystal was reported as saying: "When we understand that slide, we’ll have won the war."
