Sins of Powerpoint

Is it a good thing or a bad thing that every meeting I call has to have a detailed Powerpoint "deck" to go with it?

Powerpoint was never intended to be an organizational tool. Yet, some people are so used to looking at information this way that it becomes the standard method of communication

Powerpoint was never intended to contain lots of detail. Yet, some people either want to see granularity or don't trust the presenter, and therefore have to get out a magnifying glass to double check crunched numbers.

Powerpoint was neverintended to entertain you. So don't be offended when I leave out pictures, photos, soaring eagles, flashing get my point.
