The tedious use of flashy transitions, graphics and sound effects while making a slide presentation that is pretty much lacking in thought, meaning and value.
The corporate team stumbled out of the morning meeting after three hours of suffering through powerpointlessness and dry lectures about strategy.

Mistaken belief that young folks who were born immersed in things digital are somehow in a state of grace and older folks are cursed by their age and lack of digital conditioning. Arrogant and insulting division of generations into different camps first proposed by Marc Prensky but unfounded on any survey data.
With an insulting tone worthy of the original American nativists who hated immigrants (especially Catholic ones), Marc Prensky speaks of pre-iPod humans (digital immigrants) contemptuously. This is simply digital nativism, a kind of generational prejudice that is ill founded and unsubstantiated.

Wishful thinking that gets in the way of reality and smart decision-making as policy makers who believe something to be true (like the presence of weapons of mass destruction) start acting like they have evidence to prove it true. Closely associated with faith-based decision-making and "in your dreams" thinking.
Even though casualties and the level of violence both escalate in Iraq, members of the Bush Administration keep making optimistic forecasts about freedom and democratic prospects since they are captives of the Tinkerbell Effect. If you believe in fairies, maybe the war in Iraq will turn out well after all!

The election of Donald Trump to the presidency despite weeks of political opinion polls predicting the election of Hillary Clinton - a phenomenon much like Brexit in the UK where voters called for Britain's exit from the European Union despite weeks of political polls predicting the opposite outcome.
Political pundits and forecasters were shocked when American voters pulled off a Trumpit on election day, sending Donald Trump to the White House despite countless predictions that he would lose the election.

Blather and boring comments that some blogger enters in a blog without much thought, consideration or style. Blah Blah Blah posing as meaningful commentary.
Her newspaper columns are much better than her blog which slips into bloggery of the worst kind.

Variation of TADD - An acronym for Technology Attention Deficit Disorder — a condition caused by the excessive use of multiple technologies likely to make it difficult to focus, pay attention or understand anything difficult or challenging.
When Ruth flunked out of college in her freshman year, some of her friends blamed it on Tech A.D.D. - her total immersion in social networking and text-messaging that made it impossible for her to read her course work, pay attention in class or grasp the basics of the courses she was taking.
