I have been taking a little slack here at DTLT (which, by the way, will be hosting none other than Jon Udell at this year’s Faculty Academy on May 17th – wow!!) for pointing out the delicate subtleties of a slide show extension for flash called Slide Show Pro. So much so, that my new initials have been designated S.S.P. Often times, folks try and focus on what Slide Show Pro -that beautiful image presentation panacea- cannot do. Like, for a random example, interface and work with a photo gallery such as coppermine (which, happens to be where the theater and historic preservation classes we are working with here in DTLT are storing their digital images). Well, my jaded PowerPoint lovers, Web XS 24(like me) has recognized (in all our infinite wisdom) the shifting paradigms of web image communication as we know them, and coded accordingly.
In sum, comments on blogs can be a space for conversation, dialogue, and a general community of sharing and learning. But they can also be a place to pay homage to your Slide Show Pro master! So, I will be expecting at least two, if not three, comments on this blog very soon – if dignity is still a value in this forsaken land of scrap bookers!!
