Prezi Passes the Test
Oh man, you should see my Gmail inbox. It’s fully 50% emails to myself with drafts of Snarkmarket posts. There’s an avalanche coming. But not yet.
I did, however, want to give a shout out to Prezi. I did my first public prezi-ntation on Wednesday at Web 2.0 Expo. It was projected on a couple of mega-screens (about like this) and wow, it looked great. Really slick and entirely arresting.
The app is open to the public starting next week, and I can’t recommend it more highly.
Credit where due: It has been pointed out to me that there’s a zoom-y thing in PowerPoint these days. I still prefer Prezi, though, if only because it’s so gleefully non-rectilinear. Rotating, twisting, flipping upside down: These things are hard to avoid once you get going with a prezi. I like that.
