    This graphic makes me chuckle each time I see it. I’ve been experiencing PowerPoint fatigue since library school. PPT is supposed to enhance a presentation, but is often used as a crutch. If I have to sit through another presenter at a conference reading directly from the screen, my PowerPoint Fatigue is going to intensify into a full-blown case of PPTPTSD.
