Business Idea - Web Based Replacement For Power Point

August 2009

I've been in my fair share of meetings where a Power Point presentation was the key focus. Even if print outs are provided, you'll often here attendees asking if the presenter can e-mail them a copy of the Power Point file. Sometimes the info in the presentation is enough to stand on its own, but often it falls flat when taken away from the talking points of the presenter. This got me thinking about another approach to the display portion of a presentation that could be called "WebPoints" or something like that.

The basic idea would be something like this:

Other features could include:

I wouldn't be surprised if there are already services like this out there, but if there aren't, it is something worth exploring. The overall setup of a system like this wouldn't require a tremendous amount of development. The biggest obstacle would be in creating a nice interface for creating the pages in the web app. Of course, it could just take images as uploads. Or, better yet, just ingest an existing Power Point and convert it directly.
