Prezi - Powerpoint killer? *fingers crossed*

For the sake of keeping things relevant, this post is about a presentation website that will make all of your future employers think that you are much more impressive than you will ever deserve. This website/software is called Prezi and uses a type of flash-esque [It's called Javascript, Ben -Ed.] technology to make your business proposals way more creative and ornate than they actually are. If you go to Prezi’s website, you’ll see why it’s so effective. I call it the Michel Gondry effect, where you stare at something seemingly simple, tilt your head, and think “how does that even happen?” It’s awesome.

Okay. Now that that’s established, the REAL reason why I am commenting on this wildly convenient website is because on the homepage of Prezi there is a man who gives a short video presentation of Prezi’s capabilities. Watch it and share my embarrassment for the poor man. As interns, people are going to ask you to do things that you don’t want to do. Sometimes it’s walking in the cold to the FedEx on 5th avenue. Sometimes it’s going to be going to Bed, Bath, and Beyond and getting a quote on doorknobs for the female bathroom.

It should never be humiliating yourself over the internet [I beg to differ -Ed.]. If you can’t read a teleprompter and you don’t know how a green screen works, let your boss know. If they are at all the kind of group of people who you want to eventually work for, they’ll understand.

Don’t make the same mistake that the Prezi man-boy made. Or DO make the same mistake that the Prezi man-boy made, and let us know about it so that I can write about it. Being an intern should be a learning experience. If you can make your mistakes public so that the rest of us can learn from it, we’re all better off. Thanks for the martyrdom Prezi.

Enjoy a Prezi demo from a 9-year-old cos why not?
