Thoughts & news on technology…well, mostly

Google will release a web-based PowerPoint application

The Web 2.0 Expo is under way (April 15 – 18) and Google CEO, Eric Schmidt, has announced that they will be adding a presentation and slide show application (i.e., PowerPoint) to Google Docs & Spreadsheets.  We now have Google’s version of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.  Nice.

Eric Schmidt said it will be “launched soon” and did not give a specific timeframe.

Docs & Spreadsheets is already hugely popular and makes collaboration soooo much easier. Adding a web-based PowerPoint-esque application is a natural extension of the Google Apps.

Google continues to create applications that enable better collaboration within teams and communities – I love it. 🙂
