PowerPoint gets a really bad rap. It seems indispensible in business presentations, yet it can be so darn boring.
That’s because most presenters do it the same way – a virtual storm of bullet points with a few photos slid in.
But maybe there’s help – and hope – in PowerPoint 2010.

Pretty impressive! It’s hard to believe this is PowerPoint.
I still wonder how difficult it is to use the tool to create something so dynamic. But I’m excited about its storytelling possibilities.
