Assertive presentation software

I just saw a presentation (never mind the content) where the software kept spontaneously skipping forward. The obvious explanation is that the guy's spacebar was stuck; but, after a while, I came up with a better answer: the guy was using PowerGrabPoint. "That's enough, meatbrain; I'm giving this presentation now!"

Or it's an intelligent agent: "Look, this slide is crap -- I'm just going to skip ahead."

It's also possible that it was on a timer and he didn't realize it. Less interesting than AI, I grant you.

*Better* answer

I said it was a better answer, not a more accurate one. ;-)

I was definitely entertained.
