Presentation Sin #1
True, Powerpoint is a tool, but the mistake most people make with it is that that tool takes the form of a crutch. Instead of using other tools, like discussion, visual aids, intonation, passion, etc., they expect Powerpoint to do it all for them. The worst presentation example I ever witnessed was someone who didn't feel comfortable presenting and just showed his slides, expecting the audience to read and take it in. At which point, it becomes less a crutch and more a blunt murder weapon ala Death by PPT.
