You've lost me. You said we were all cooler then IIRC, and I can think of a couple people who weren't [cooler then than now].

You lost me when you said yup. But that's okay. I'm operating on too little sleep this week and I feel like shit.

Yup was the standard joke when one agrees succinctly to two different or even conflicting ideas minus any elaboration like this.

I been meaning to ask about powerpoint.... does anyone actually use it? seems like every "class" (read review session for people who have already taken it while leaving us noobs to figure shit out later) I take at the hospital has a print out of like eight cells on a sheet and some of the idiots seem to put the same thing on the screen, or worse yet, just makes us thumb through the thing with nothing on the screen... oh wait, there was orientation, they used it correctly there.

Wut?
The witness said Mr Brown then called out to Ms Hay's adult daughter: "Look at this, I'm tittie-f***ing your mother!".

I use PowerPoint when I teach. If I didn't, and if I didn't post the slides in advance of each lecture, students would cry and give me bad reviews.

by using the same thing, i mean instead of going slide by slide they have the damn thumbnails on a giant screen in front of me. This technique varies from instructors scrolling through the thumbs and finding the one they want to make big, to scrolling through them while they discuss them... in other words not the one by one that the program is designed for.

Also, should "higher" education be succumbing to the ADD tendencies of the Xbox generation?

I think it is sad, to be honest. When I did my first degree, PowerPoint didn't exist. And overheads were used infrequently, and only by the most annoying profs.

I remember the pleasure of listening to smart people lecture for 60 or 90 minutes straight, without distraction.

Now, profs click on brightly colored pictures in a desperate and ultimately pointless attempt to hold students' attention. They aren't listening to me or anyone else -- they are emailing friends and posting on useless websites like this one.
