Share Your PowerPoint Online: A Cool New Tool

A decade ago, back in the dark ages of the Internet, I’d often put presentations that I delivered at conferences into HTML so that I could readily display them on my website (check out this old chestnut on using the Internet for legal research, circa 1997 – it predated Google!).  Posting a PowerPoint presentation online proved cumbersome with the tools then in place, and listing it as a link for users to download wasn’t really an effective option.

So imagine my delight at discovering SlideShare (www.slideshare.net), a site that allows users to upload Power Point presentations and embed them in a blog or website, in a manner similar to YouTube.  Last week, I spoke at a Symposium sponsored by the Texas Journal of Oil, Gas and Energy Law and in a matter of minutes, I posted my presentation
online here in a user friendly format.  And I envision uses for this tool beyond just creating a virtual paper trail of past presentations:  bloggers might put together a 4-5 Power Point “how to” on one topic or another and post it online for users to flip through or download.

Word of caution:  be sure to copyright your slides.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve sat through my own presentations, delivered by other attorneys with no attribution.  I’m a huge supporter of free information, but my support ends where other lawyers appropriate my work for their advantage without giving me credit.

    Carolyn,
    Thanks for the super-kind words!
    Indeed, how-to slideshows are a big category. Another one we’re seeing is consumer activism. Check out:

    We hope that slideshare becomes another way for people to get their message out, whatever the message is!
    Regards,
    -Jon Boutelle (CTO, SlideShare)

    I just have to say SlideShare is the most amazing web site I have found in a long time. It’s everything you could ask for on the web. It’s entertaining, educational, Slideshare can make you laugh, it can make you cry. You can meet people from all over the world on SlideShare. You will see some fantastic slide presentations,also great photography. SlideShare will tough on your every emotion. I encourage you to go there, look around meet the people. You can even talk to the people who stated the site ,they are fascinating. As you can tell I just love slideShare. Judy, From Canada
