Employ a "printer-friendly" method for printing (Powerpoint) slides that minimizes the use of ink. The vivid colors that make a great on-screen presentation sap the resources of our ink cartridges and aren't necessary for hard copies of briefings. Similar to spell-check in Word, a simple feature could prompt for correction of ink-sapping features so the user could adjust the slide design for ink-conserving printing (e.g., replace dark blue background with white and adjust other colors, perhaps for print version only). If current software doesn't include this feature so that it can become a default for USG, ask Microsoft (and others) to add it -- call it "Ink-check" and how could they say no?
