Prezi.  Either you love it, hate it, or have no idea what it is.  If you’re in the last category, go check out www.prezi.com.  Me? I’m in the first category.  I love its Web 2.0-ness, its fluidity, its boundlessness, its exploration of virtual space.  But haters hate and not without reason. [read more]
