Slideshare – Upload and Share Slideshows

by Jeff Barr | on |

Slideshare This has been the pseudocode for my day so far:

while (Cool AWS Stuff In Inbox)
{
    Read About It
    Visit It
    Take A Picture
    Blog About It
    Delete Email
}

Today’s newest find is Slideshare.net,  a site for storing and sharing slide shows, powered by Amazon S3. The slides are served up directly from S3, so this image-heavy site probably doesn’t have any heavy duty proprietary server infrastructure behind it.

There’s some pretty cool stuff in there already, including Paul Kedrosky’s Sheer Hype By Desperate Men.

Each slide can have a transcript, and it is easy to navigate to related slide shows, similar slide shows, and other slide shows with the same tag. The site accepts uploads in PowerPoint and Open Office format.
