Professor T X Hammes wrote an article for Joint Forces Quarterly about why Microsquish PowerPoint Presentations are a bad forum for decision making.♠ Someone then made a PowerPoint presentation of the article.
I think the first Gulf War was the first time that PowerPoint like presentations became a tool in the decision making process, although vu-graphs had been around for a long time, and their use was even taught at Staff College, when I attended in 1974.

♠ No, I didn't read the article, I reviewed the PowerPoint presentation.
