Lambs to the Slaughter

"University of Chicago Graduate School of Business will require applicants to submit up to four PowerPoint slides about themselves for students entering in 2008...

"Michael Flocker, author, Death by PowerPoint [observes], 'It's as if they are actively seeking those who think best inside the box... The use of templates... is the antithesis of creativity.'

"John Fernandes, president, Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business [says], 'If Chicago is doing it next year, you'll soon find 10 other schools schools doing it'."

("PowerPoint: Is There No Escape?" Business Week: August 13, 2007. pg. 14)

WHY only four? Baaa!
