Powerpoint karaoke

From the Boston Globe’s Ideas section comes

From the Boston Globe’s Ideas section comes this feature on the fascinating new activity that is taking the German tech world by storm. Key quote:

In a typical event, a few brave people volunteer to “present” a random deck of slides pulled off the Web, or borrowed from friends or employers. (I first heard about PowerPoint Karaoke when an organizer asked if she could use a deck I had presented on word meanings.) The audience laughs, cheers, and yells out suggestions as the presenters gamely struggle to link one slide to the next, transforming something that probably started life as a tedious corporate monologue into a five-minute flight of creative irony.

That sounds wild, ja?UPDATE: Here’s some video. Please translate amongst yourselves.
