Searcharazzi: Google Launching Presently Presentation App Next Week?

Searcharazzi - A Column From Search Engine Land

PowerPoint haters unite! So, Techcrunch says that The Inquirer says that Google is thiiiiiiiis close to launching Presently, a web-based alternative to PowerPoint. With consulting firm CapGemini now pushing Google Apps hard, can we finally say goodbye to Microsoft’s Office Suite?

Some speculate that the app will be unveiled next week at TechCruch 40 (formerly TechCrunch 20, but I guess the start up life is going well). After all, Google is on the list of Who’s Coming, as is rival Microsoft Corporation. Interestingly, the speaker that caught our attention is MC Hammer. Yes, folks, The Hammer.

If the Presently rumor is true, Searcharazzi suggests that they scrap the current keynote and have The Hammer, Marissa Mayer and Michael Moritz put on a little show of “U Can’t Touch This” for the Microsoft team. Ye-ouch!

    That’s awesome, because I’m probably the only person that works in tech that doesn’t know how to use Powerpoint. I’ve been hiding this like I have some kind of contagious illness or something, but now I can just jump on this new technology and have everyone believe I’m an early adopter and cutting-edge (lol).

    If you want a multimedia presentation that’s really easy to set up, you could do a lot worse than trying out Eric Meyer’s wonderful S-5

    Only takes a bit of HTML and CSS knowledge to get going
