It is National Just Say No to PowerPoint Week: Just Say Yes to SlideRocket!

By Tracy Frey on February 10, 2009

According to the Nashua Telegraph, this week (February 9th to 13th) is officially Just Say No to PowerPoint Week.  We think this is an important holiday that bears recognition.  The Nashua Telegraph points to a few things everyone can do to fulfill his or her duty, and Just Say No:

“[This week] is a time to encourage those who rely on PowerPoint as a presentation crutch to get creative. Consider incorporating charades (“Sounds like ‘nudge’? Um, ‘budge’? Budge! Small word. It? It! Budge it? Budget!”) and giving candy to those who guess correctly…

If you’re not ready to broaden your creative horizons quite that far, try experimenting with the different bells and whistles PowerPoint has to offer. If you’re going to stand there and read slides at your audience, at least give them some snazzy clip art to enjoy.”

This last point is where we come in.  Now, you – dear PowerPoint user – have an alternative.  You can certainly explore said bells and whistles if you like.  There’s a lot of them, once (if?) you can find them. Then you can import that presentation into SlideRocket and really turn on the gas.  OR, you could just start in SlideRocket, instantly add awesome stock photography or Flickr images, use our plugin architecture to add quotes and effects, or hey – why not? – import (gasp!) HD videos and ensure that everyone who views your presentation can see them clearly.  Even in a web meeting.  Yup, you heard me. I said HD video in a web meeting without compromise.

So, proud presentation creators, stand strong during this week, and don’t Just Say No to PowerPoint; Say Yes to SlideRocket!

Want to see some examples?  Check out our demos page. Want to learn more? Join our weekly intro tutorial tomorrow (Wednesday, Februrary 11th) at 11 AM PT and we’ll help you celebrate this holiday for all it is worth.

    たしかにカラコンつけてるくーみんもカワイイっちゃカワイイけど
    それはそれまでで終わってしまうため新しいものを導き出すことはできない。 まあこんな会社が販売してるカラコンは特に危険だろうな・・・

    I have a MacBook computer and I want my pictures that are on my computer to become on my Motorola Razr 2 v9. I have a storage card and a storage card adapter. When I put the card in the adapter, the computer identifies it. And the pictures that I have upon my mobile phone can transfer to the pc with no problem. But the images on my computer refuses to transfer to my phone. All that comes up is a large red “x” on a black screen. Are I performing something wrong? The phone business is AT&T..

    El servicio técnico de Fagor está centralizado bajo el número 902105010 y me atendió una señorita muy amablemente, comentándome que el calentador estaba aún en garantía, tomándome los datos e indicándome que al día siguiente (por hoy) por la tarde se pasaría un técnico. Aunque mi experiencia puntual ha sido satisfactoria, los comentarios suelen ser totalmente negativos en lo que respecta al servicio ofrecido por Fagor, por lo que sugiero que le echen un vistazo a los mismos. Hola, yo soy de Alicante y estoy intentando que me reparen una cafetera express (FAGOR) que me compré y pierde más agua que el Titanic.
