PowerPoint, SchmowerPoint

There have been a couple of web releases this week that I’ve been really impressed with. The first is a full screen windowless browser called PlainView that was created by the Barbarian Group. It was put together to let them present work to clients directly from the browser rather than having to bugger about with PowerPoint. A brilliant idea. And in a spirit of free love, they’ve decided to share it with the world. Get a copy for your Mac right here.

The next is a web based presentation app called 280 Slides. Think of it as Keynote (Apple’s much more elegant version of PowerPoint) in a browser. I wanted to test it out, so I did a presentation of yesterday’s ‘What makes a Viral’ rant. It really is lovely to use and gives you a great result. You can even download your presentation in PowerPoint format. if you so wish. But what I like best is that you can direct people to a URL where they can see your presentation in their browser.

See for yourself. Click on the image below to view my incredible handiwork.

Thanks to Knotty and Andy Whitlock

    What about the Rickrolling meme? That definitely needs a place in your viral presentation!
