Death by Powerpoint

I was looking at tools that can be used in presentations - and was reminded of Slideshow. In Slideshow you can create presentations online - and as I browsed I ran across this presentation which fits completely some thoughts I agree with on making a good presentation and as espoused by Presentation Zen.

PDF and Life

In listening to Geek!Ed on my drive in today - Episode 0109 had me reflecting on some PDF tools that are out in the world. PDF as you know is a format that allows one to share documents between platforms or applications. Here are some mentioned on that show.

Inkscape. Draw Freely.
An Open Source vector graphics editor, with capabilities similar to Illustrator, CorelDraw, or Xara X, using the W3C standard Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format.

Inkscape supports many advanced SVG features (markers, clones, alpha blending, etc.) and great care is taken in designing a streamlined interface. It is very easy to edit nodes, perform complex path operations, trace bitmaps and much more. We also aim to maintain a thriving user and developer community by using open, community-oriented development.

Additionally it can be used as a PDF editor.

Some PDF to Word Converter can help you to convert pdf to word doc and pdf to rtf, so you can edit and reuse your PDF content. Using Some PDF to Word Converter you can preserve original layout, text, images, vector drawings of your pdf file.

Easily convert pdf to word doc, pdf to rtf with Some PDF to Word Converter!
