At the Sciblog conference I presented a few slides as part of a powerpoint presentation. Corie Lok
, a senior editor at Nature, has just told me of a way of uploading my presentation to the internet so that anyone can see it. It is called Slideshare
and I think it is a great little site. I've just tried it out, and although there are a few technical glitches with mine at the moment, I can see its potential. I shall post up the URL of my talk once it is ready. I think it is so good of the people who developed this software to make it available to everyone - a great example of the altruistic nature of some parts of the internet.
When I get a chance I shall upload my Alfred Wegener and 'Women and Madness in the 19th century' presentations too. They were quite a lot of work, and might be of interest to one or two people of the millions now on the internet - so it is great to be able to share them.Update: The glitches turned out not to be glitches after all. Once the presentation (which you can see here) is downloaded from the Slideshare Website, everything is fine.
