What to do with PowerPoint when you no longer use it for training (or use it minimally)

If you've decided to wean your company from the use of PowerPoint in training and/or e-learning (think interactivity) fear not that you've wasted your money on the software. You can use it to create art.

David Byrne, composer, photographer, and lead singer of the band Talking Heads, has turned PowerPoint into an artistic medium. Australian IT writes, "In his book and DVD compilation, Envisioning Emotional Epistemological Information, Byrne twists PowerPoint...into a multimedia canvas, pontificating that the software's charts, graphs, bullet points and arrows have changed communication styles."

Read more about Byrne's use of PowerPoint and general musings on whether "Power corrupts and PowerPoint corrupts absolutely" in the article.
