Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Pages is still my primary work tool. I often start in Word because I love (have got very used to) the Outline feature - one of the best and simplest ways of organizing thoughts and pastes.

But what is weird is that a couple of the bigger ad agencies I work with, and their clients, send me stuff in ppt. Even voiceover scripts!

Nokia started it. Their HQ in Keilalahti, Espoo is still called 'Powerpoint Heaven'. Everything there is focused around the meeting rooms: long tables, an LCD projector and the screen. Almost the entire DNA of Nokia is in all those ppts, because they evolve, slides are dropped, bits become metafiles, groups add more depth (more slides) etc. Now it seems the marketing business is conducted through presentations.

There has long been a law in Finland (or a series of laws) that require the makers of TV programs, books, records, CDs magazines, brochures, radio tapes etc to file two copies with one of the archiving organizations. How this is going to work in a cloud, I don't know.

You can't be me, I'm taken
