Two new technology tools


Today I learned about 2 new technology tools that I thought were interesting to share.

Posterous

The first is a new blogging platform called posterous and claims to be the simplest on the market. You set up your account and just email your post. It embeds pictures, has tags, does video. The only drawback so far is that you can’t customize a skin for it but it looks like they are working on it. I created a test one for Gettysburg today feel free to check it out.

Prezi

Prezi is a new type of cloud computing presentation software that is also free. As it states on the website “Create a map of your ideas, images, videos, then show overview, zoom to details, amaze, convince, take the day.”  With just a little bit of work this can take a boring campus powerpoint and “spruce it up” a bit.
