"A report tabled in the
(US) (Australian) House of Representatives today suggested Parliament should consider allowing politicians to use computer software such as Microsoft's PowerPoint program to illustrate their speeches.
The procedure committee also admits there could be other problems with the proposal. The committee would also need to be alert to the possibility of what might be ultimately less substantial contributions gaining greater attention because of the use of technology, possible even the use of material or approaches prepared by experts in communications."
so it is now dangerous to have slideshows designed by 'experts in communication' ?
the report itself, title "Inquiry into encouraging an interactive chamber", can be found here (thnkx Ed & Steve!).
