There are three major headaches with PowerPoint:
1 - Web conference sharing often takes a quarter of the meeting to just get it setup.
2 - If you are in the office, you can waste a lot of time trying to find a project, get it configured, focused
3 - If you present at a conference, too often we find ourselves bound to the podium because even if you have a clicker, it doesn't always synch, or you have to use the PC provided and the clicker can't connect, etc
Over the weekend via TechCrunch I believe I have discovered the solution to all three headaches- MightyMeeting.
Here is what MightyMeeting does. You upload your PPT to MightMeeting. You then invite people to watch the presentation via email. They have 2 ways to view the presentation - via Web (which is basically a secure flash app) or mobile (currently IPhone/itouch or Android).
Then as you advance the slides, their slides advance.
I gave it a try yesterday in the office and it was pretty slick.
In particular what I'm thinking is that for something like OOW - I will use the web client to project on the screen and use the iPhone to drive the deck. That way I can get into the audience and make a better connection.
