On their website, the newly founded Swiss Anti-PowerPoint Party states the following: "The fact is that the average PowerPoint presentation creates boredom." Agreed!
Interestingly, the APPP states that "the use of presentation software costs the Swiss economy 2.1 billion Swiss francs (US$ 2.5 billion) annually." This number is based on lost productivity by employees sitting in on presentations which essentially serve no purpose.
Their noble mission is not to abolish PowerPoint presentations from the face of Earth, butto remove any constraints associated with them. In other words, students who are not using PowerPoint as a presentation tool should not get a lesser grade. Along the same lines, professors and marketeers should no longer have to justify why they have chosen not to use PowerPoint.
