If you've read Seth Godin's "Really Bad PowerPoint" e-book*, you're well aware of some of the limitations of presentation software. Now, however, there's an alternative that promises to take presentation design into a whole different stratosphere: Slide Rocket. One of the key advantages of SlideRocket is that it's web based, which allows you to access presentations remotely and seamlessly search for and embed files from sources like Flickr and YouTube. It may be good enough to make PowerPoint...well, pointless. Check out product demos and blog or sign up for the beta at sliderocket.com.
*And if you haven't read it, you really should.
