Just a quick reminder that Connection07 is next week (March 27). If you missed it or need a reminder, my original post about it is Connection07: a conference about the modern Web. I think there are still places left, so register if you haven’t already done so.
On a related note, I finally managed to set some time aside for preparing my slides. For this presentation I am using a new tool. I normally use S5, but wasn’t quite happy with the format since it doesn’t really work that well for presentations that contain more than just basic bulletpoints. And when you want to insert some audio, well, I decided not to go there. And using PowerPoint is out of the question. It is almost as good as IE at making me throw things across the room in anger and frustration.
What I did instead was buy myself a copy of Apple Keynote, and I don’t see myself using anything else for presentations from now on. It just works, and it works very well. Keynote really makes Powerpoint look and feel like a cheap toy created by somebody with no sense of aesthetics or usability.
