I gave a couple of talks over the past month, where I chose not to use the W3C-traditional HTML-based slides (using Slidy), but instead to use a more graphical approach, using two different tools:
- Prezi, a Flash-based commercial tool that I used for a presentation I gave on Web 2.0 and beyond
- JessyInk, an open-source extension to the open-source SVG editor InkScape, with which I built the presentation I gave on W3C and the Social Web.
I’m summarizing below my experiences with both these tools.
Prezi is a Flash-based tool, that allows both to build and show 2D-presentations.
