SlideShare, a new site for viewing, posting, and commenting on presentations (found via Ajaxian) gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside! I’ve seen many presentations posted on blogs (heck, I do it) that point at either Microsoft .PPTs or PDFs. And good lord, how I hate pdf slides.
Its the YouTube for presentations, providing an easy way to browse and post presentations in a community-centric interface. In fact, the SlideShare interface is extremely similar to YouTube in its page structure and its sharable content features (embedding and linking). I dare-say its a copycat. But…a copy-cat that makes me happy. :)
I’ll be posting some example slides as soon as I can upload them!…Things seem a bit buggy at SlideShare right now. I’m hoping that they solve that stuff soon…a lot of broken pages/script timeouts. Chances are they weren’t prepared for the load that Ajaxian has given them.
UPDATE: Here’s the slides I posted a little while back from my database guest lecture.
