Celebrating 15 years of TYPO moments (9)

Powerpoint-Karaoke is a spin-off from the traditional Karaoke, however instead of singing songs, the participants must present a stand-up-presentation based on a random .ppt-file, projected on a screen.

Powerpoint-Karaoke, TYPO Berlin 2006

The name is based on the title of Microsoft Powerpoint, the world’s most ubiquitous presentation software.  The presentations can come from a sampling of images collected locally or by randomly downloading from the Internet.
