I have posted about the poor use of PowerPoint in corporations here and here. Actually, all over the blog. You can search for PowerPoint if you want to see more posts. People use the term “death by PowerPoint” to describe the experience of sitting through a presentation.
Sadly, death appears to be the case with this story. Poor soul.
Update: just in case you haven’t hit the Onion site before, the story about the project manager is completely false. It did not really happen.
