my 4 slides – a contest entry

Scott McLeod’s post First … Then … Now … Next introduced me to the 4-slides sales pitch contest, hosted by Dan Meyer at dy/dan. Here are my slides.

This was fun to do – AND I discovered an alternative to SlideShare, which has yet to work for me! It is called SlideBurner.

**update – now that I have moved to I can no longer embed SlideBurner files into my posts, which I find strange since is powered by wordpress…

So, I have discovered a work around for SlideShare. Even though it advertises acceptance of .odp files, it did not like them from my Ubuntu run operating system. I had to save the files as a .ppt file in OpenOffice and was able to upload it.

  1. Great slideshow. I like the “entanglement” concept — it seems to capture the idea of people coming together and finding meaning in things.

    Also, I did not know about Slideburner, so thanks for the lead. I have used SlideShare with my edublogs — just grab the WordPress code and insert into the post while in HTML editor.

    Thanks for sharing

  2. Thanks Kevin – that entanglement concept is key for me.

    As for SlideShare…I know how it should work, the problem is that it doesn’t even allow me to upload files. Each time I try I receive a conversion failed error. But thanks for trying to help me out with it!

    At least there is another option with SlideBurner 🙂


  3. Revisiting…loved the slide show! As an amateur physicist, the entanglement concept resonates with me, as well…and the inclusive nature of the blogosphere REALLY drive home that concept…the possibilities are endless…
