@JoelLesher@JayBaer Yep, I did not drink the blue Kool-Aid. (And I'm allowed to make the kool-aid joke since I went to Butler.) Who Dey!

@JayBaer@JoelLesher With the "40 under 40" there is a nomination process and they do outline the process. With Social 46, it probably would have been better to just name the 46 all at once, instead of slow playing it so to speak. I think it felt like to many that they were just making it up as they went along.

@JoelLesher Child please. I never made a big deal out of not being selected. I just wanted to understand the process. People said it was "all Klout" while others were saying it was random. Even now as part of the group, the selection process could have been communicated better.

@SpaldoBusiness Man, I love that "toss an anchor at the passengers" bit.

Thanks Jay. As a fellow member of the "Social 46," I can understand why so many are questioning the process implemented. But unfortunately it's coming at the expense of community relationships. As I mentioned earlier in the week. A few that were selected made too big of a deal out of the selection. And counter, a few that weren't selected are making too big of a deal of being left out. Those being questioned and ultimately defending the group weren't the ones who put the group together.

But you do bring up a good point about the freebies given to the group. Without the prizes (which you pointed out the group was against from the beginning), the scarves, hats, tickets, etc, the host committee would have still had a turnout of support. When we all showed up that night, we had no idea what was in store for us.

@RockyWalls Not as complicated as prezi.

@RockyWalls So this is a slide from one of my presentations. I took a screenshot of the YouTube page. Put it onto a PPT slide. Then placed the video in the same spot the video played on YouTube. It blew people away (not literally). http://twitpic.com/7lrm7z

@RockyWalls Right. So it has nothing to do with the platform and everything to do with the presentation and presenter.

Is this the longest comment thread ever on your blog?

@RockyWalls The biggest problem with PowerPoint isn't with PowerPoint. It's how people have abused it. You can make great presentations using it without it looking like "PowerPoint."

@RockyWalls And when you download it, can you then play it any computer or do you use your own?

@RockyWalls What happens if you use Prezi but at a computer that's not connected to the Internet?

I could be wrong, but I believe when you insert a movie into a PowerPoint file it doesn't add the entire video, but instead just links it from the source. If you send this presentation to somebody, the link would be broken. But every speaker knows you should always use your own computer anyway.
