Demo of the system is here. Go ahead, load up the demo, then select “View Source” from the browser to see how clean the markup is.
This system has a few advantages over PowerPoint:
- It’s HTML, so you don’t have to buy the PowerPoint software to create or view the slides. This makes it easier to share your presentation with other users.
- If you’re already familiar with HTML, it makes it even easier to create presentations.
- It can display any information you can embed in a browser. Embed hyperlinks to escape out to other webpages instead of clumsily toggling between applications halfway through your presentation.
- It doesn’t (yet) support animated transitions from slide to slide. (That’s a feature because I find animations always distract from the presentation.)
It just occurred to me that this post would make a great S5 presentation.
