For years, Microsoft has been trying to add features to Office without them getting in the way of people who already know their way around the software. Unfortunately, the company was a little too successful at making its innovations unobtrusive.

That's the name of a new PowerPoint blog from Andrew - the blog discusses bad PowerPoint and how you can make t better. Here's the description in Andrew's own words:

The title of this blog is a little misleading. I’m not actually proposing “death to PowerPoint”. I don't hate PowerPoint. I don't even dislike it. In fact, I actually think it's one of the most useful persuasive tools ever devised. What I am proposing with this blog is death to bad PowerPoint. Go to Andrew's blog....

PointeCast just added a new $99 version to their PowerPoint to Flash publishing suite. They did retain plenty of the most-used features of their more expensive versions and at $99, I think it's a great tool to get started on the Online Rich Media bandwagon.
