26 June 2009


Posting will be erratic for the next few days. Expect an article from me in Small Wars Journal within the week.

What could I be possibly writing about in SWJ? The Israeli-Palestinian conflict? The SOFA agreement which mandates that US troops be out of the cities by 30 June? Counter-narcotics in Afghanistan?

Nay, something that affects all Small Warriors: Microsoft PowerPoint.

This article was partly inspired by a recent discussion at companycommand.mil, in which platoon leaders and company commanders noted that they spent an inordinate amount of time on PowerPoint slides instead of on actual leadership functions. I think that anyone in the military, corporate boardroom or classroom might get a kick out of it.

You young whippersnappers, nothing but bitch, bitch, bitch. You got nothing to bitch about until you've done a QTB on ye olde Harvard Graphics--and then had to transfer the brief onto transparency slides. Good times, good times.
