We present a lot in our business and presentations are getting tougher. As ideas and brands live across disciplines and we produce more and more content integrated across and within multiple mediums showing the stuff itself gets awkward. Both to present and to sit through. In fact if your research or creative presentations are not a struggle to piece together it might be a sign you're not thinking broad enough. Not too often anymore I present 'a' tv ad on it's own. Or 'a' website. Or 'a' print campaign. Usually they are all bundled together with a whole lot more. And a PowerPoint or Keynote deck with frame grab of sites or a video showing site navigation are about as exciting as a presentation on Sarbanes Oxley.
The Barbarian Group has made a gift to the industry by giving away free software called Plainview for presenting websites more cleanly without all that browser chrome. But like most technology it will likely get used in was unintended or unimagined. I've often though about using a blog to build a presentation as it lets you embed code and jump to sites, but it's cluttered with all the browser bling. But with Plainview software maybe you can build the presentation, incorporating text, video, links and multiple web properties all in one. Might just have to check that out.
