The result is a little slow on my 2006 Macbook Pro, but the concept and the possibilities are pretty amazing. Combining the two tools, you have a (so far) totally free solution for creating and presenting slide shows by way of a web-based tool and a small desktop application. Both Plainview and 280slides only released this week, so there’s plenty of room for improvement, but they each seem to be off to good starts.
Blankenship blogged about Plainview. Gruber blogged about 280slides. I decided to see how it would work putting the two together.
