I have been looking forward to Thing 17 The Medium is the message: Prezi and Slideshare. I did a test Prezi on public speaking but I found the video instructions a little difficult to follow. I like that Prezi is free. I like that I can upload an existing powerpoint and upload videos so I played with that. I find it time consuming right now but I would imagine with practice I would be able to use my time wisely. When done properly, Prezi's zooming ability really is impressive to me, for example, this brief presentation by wikiman about blogging. Apart from one spelling error the presentation is awesome.
I have learned a lot from the repository that is slideshare but have never created a powerpoint and posted on it. I had no idea people used visual resumes like this very creative yet simple one here. I still have not tested slideshare but if I ever have anything worth sharing this is a useful tool.
