Is anybody out there using Flash as a replacement for Powerpoint? I’ve been thinking for quite some time that Flash movies are superior to Powerpoint presentations in just about every way. They’re ready for streaming over the Internet, they’re much smaller, and the effects are much cooler than those available in Powerpoint. If someone repackaged the Flash authoring environment so that it worked more like Powerpoint, it seems to me that Microsoft might have a good fight on their hands. Flash is misused a lot, but many people seem to think that Flash isn’t useful — that’s certainly not the case.
