Share your best and worst PowerPoint experiences

Share your best or worst experience as a PowerPoint presenter or a member of the audience.

There's a ton of advice to be had on PowerPoint, but nothing makes a point quite as well as real life. Even with the best advice, it's hard to know what's going to work…or isn't, until you're in the middle of the presentation. So today, I'd like to depart from my usual routine. I want to hear from you. Tell us your best and/or worst PowerPoint story. It doesn't matter if you were the creator, presenter, or a member of the audience—I'm sure we'll all learn quite a bit about what we'd like to try, or avoid, from these stories!
