Experimenting with Slideshare

At the UIE Web App Summit, Rashmi Sinha let me know about a product that she has been working on called Slideshare which is essentially a flash presentation of PowerPoint slides. I thought that I would experiment with it and post my slides from the UIE Web App Summit to make it easier for everyone to see them. My deck uses quite a few animations, both through PowerPoint and embedded avi files, so was hoping that the animations and transitions specified by PowerPoint would have been picked up, but they weren’t. As a result, the deck looks a bit rough and unpolished.

Overall, the Slideshare product looks promising for the future, and I’m sure the missing features will get added.

Apparently WordPress doesn’t support embedding the Slideshare objects so my deck can be found here:
