What is Death by PowerPoint?
As is obvious from the term itself, Death by PowerPoint implies a really tortured presentation. This might include text-heavy slides, confusing graphics, a presenter reading out 50 slides before a yawning audience or even a dysfunctional slide deck, marred by technical glitches and the inability of the presenter to cope with the pressure of presenting his/her slides. To make it simple, Death by PowerPoint refers to a boring, sleep inducing presentation, which suffers from poor use of presentation software, especially PowerPoint. However, the term might also be loosely associated with other presentation applications to highlight a horrible presentation in general.
A bad powerpoint is the modern-day equivalent of "chalk and talk".
