20 years of PowerPoint, no reason to party

20 years of PowerPoint, no reason to party

August 24th 2007 I read an article in the Conference Special of Management Team. And I quote : ‘Twenty years of PowerPoint is no reason to party. Even Robert Gaskins, the creator of the program, had an ambivalent feeling on that birthday. Lots of business people have stopped writing reports. They merely write presentations which are no more than summories without the context…’ .These were Gaskins’ words in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.  And who would want to contradict the man who invented the program ?
