I don’t personally hate PowerPoint.  The truth is, we’ve had so few meaningful interactions that it’s difficult for me to draw any real conclusions about our relationship.  Instead, PowerPoint and I exist in a nebulous cloud of undeterminable status.  It is both tragic and forgettable, at once.

Now, please bear with me for my 40 slide presentation which will approximately say the same thing.

MEGAN: I'm really excited about my presentation for class today! I stayed up all night working on the PowerPoint to go along with it!

MEGAN: I searched Google's Life Magazine archives and found all these images to go along with it. Then, I used Amazon's Search Inside the Book feature to research all these books I couldn't find at the local library. I even found some videos online that I was able to annotate and include! It's about 100 slides long, but it's awesome. I just need to download it from my email.

HOBO: My laptop appears to have committed hara-kiri rather than face your project. If it's any consolation, it used to cut itself when I opened PDFs.
