PowerPoint: 5 Things You Might Not Know About It

I’m sure you’ve heard of PowerPoint. It’s been around for decades, and it’s the de facto tool for creating a presentation. Whenever you sit in a meeting and someone stands up to give a prepared speech, you probably assume they’re going to use a PowerPoint presentation, and if they don’t you probably look at them funny. We’ve grown accustomed to learning things from others by watching a projector screen full of words fade in and out, and many times we’re even patient enough to allow the speaker to once again read the slides to us as if we’re not already Hooked On Phonics.

But there are a few things about the PowerPoint of today that you might not know about. Over the next few posts, I’ll talk about 5 PowerPoint factoids that may shock and amaze you. Specifically:

  1. It’s free!
  2. It’s a Spike Lee joint!
  3. It likes it when you watch.
  4. It’s the Wizard of Oz.
  5. It’s mocking you.

Stay tuned for the upcoming posts where we’ll explore each of these topics! See ya soon!
