Two minutes per slide:

Some people can’t manage it.

Productive work calls.

Why is it necessary to have a project management review every month?  Or rather, why is it necessary that I put together slides and sit in this half-day-plus meeting that inevitably runs over?  At least this time I didn’t have to travel for it, because that’s a bit of a waste.  After doing my presentation for this meeting remotely, I don’t know if I ever really want to travel for these things again.  So much of the meeting time is spent going in circles and reviewing things that have already been done; if I’m not on travel, at least in theory I can go in and out as I want and do productive things while listening to the inanity.
