I’d almost written-off Slideshare, until I got the below email from them reminding me of past presentations and the ‘long tail’ readership that presentations can have (note: are the 3819 views on ‘Agile Prototyping in Academia’ actual human readership?):

= I currently use GoogleDocs presentations, in fact most of these were produced as GDocs and then spat out as PPT.
I wonder what would be more effective in terms of dissemination, a.) publishing presentations (like my previous post on ‘ResBaz: a new model for research community tools & services) or b.) publishing out to Slideshare to see what GoogleJuice they generate? <– I suppose this also depends on how easy it is to read and view via mobile devices, sharing to twitter, etc.
