SlideShare Sends PowerPoint to the Cloud


I like SlideShare. I surf it for ideas, and I always find something interesting. I don’t normally post about other articles or blogs too often, but I really found this as an interesting example of using the cloud to expand your existing offering in a horizontal way to provide more value to your users, as well as make your service a little more sticky.

And without further ado…


SlideShare, a startup that we’ve likened to a YouTube equivalent for PowerPoint presentations, has released a new plugin for Microsoft Office 2007 that allows users to edit and publish presentations directly to their SlideShare accounts. You can download the free plugin here.

Beyond publishing new PowerPoint documents to the web, the SlideShare plugin can import SlideShare files from the cloud (both your own and those that are shared by others), which can then be modified on your native PowerPoint client. The plugin features an integrated search so you can browse through files from your SlideShare contacts and groups, as well as support for Twitter and FriendFeed so you can broadcast a new presentation without leaving Office.

Great find Brian! Now if only slideshare supported pptx, animations and transparencies better. Hopefully soon!
