Reading the latest edition of PC World I came across a quote that had me rolling in laughter. Peter Norvig (an executive at Google) said, “Powerpoint is like having a loaded AK-47 on the table. You can do very bad things with it.”

Funny – and true. It is not a bad program as Mr. Tufte says. But it can be used very poorly. So I went online and found a few more good quotes:

“PowerPoint is the Rodney Dangerfield of software: it gets no respect.”
– Ken Goldberg, the Berkeley engineering professor

“If you like overheads, you’ll love PowerPoint.”
– Edward Tufte

Hmmm… maybe some things to ponder today…
