"PowerPoint Makes Us Stupid"

General McChrystal's intention when saying that may have been to be clever and succinct, but there's a bit of truth in it. It's easy to blame PowerPoint because it's one of the easier programs to use for creating slide decks. But PowerPoint isn't really the culprit; rather, it's any software that can create flashy, convincing and persuasive slide presentations. Like Apple's Keynote. Sometimes, a complex idea can't be reduced to a few slides with bullet points.
