Very funny.

Ha! That was funny. I work for a corporation that is a heavy PowerPoint user. This is supposed to allow you to increase your productivity but sometimes folks go way overboard or completely mess it up. Half the time I fall asleep looking at those freakin' slides. The other thing that blows is the "Crackberry".

How has PP ruined corporate America?

I worked for a company that used pp slides for rapid communication of study results. Individuality and customization were frowned upon so all one had to do was fill in the department designed templates. Not having to design slides did increase productivity.

PP sucks. It is part of the dumbing down of America. Learn write. If all that counts is "productivity" then why don't we just stop kidding ourselves and go straight to that 1920s sci fi movie "Metropolis" and "Brave New World."

"Learn to write." ??

I can only speak from my experience, although pp was used for communicating results rapidly, it was followed up with a detailed report that would take months to finalize. If a decision needed to made, the data was available.
