The history of PowerPoint (ppt)

This is the PowerPoint history.
Bob Gaskins, a former Berkeley Ph.D. student, conceived PowerPoint

originally as an easy-to-use presentation program. He hired a software

developer, Dennis Austin, in 1984 to build a prototype program, called

"Presenter," later changing the name to PowerPoint for trademark reasons.

PowerPoint 1.0 was released in 1987 for the Apple Macintosh platform; later

that year Gaskins's company Forethought and the program were purchased

by Microsoft for $14 million.

The first Windows and DOS versions of PowerPoint followed in 1988.

PowerPoint became a standard part of the Microsoft Office suite in 1990.

According to Microsoft, more than 30 million presentations are made around

the world with PowerPoint every day.

Presentations of the year 2010

Creativity | 2010. 12. 31. 15:12 | Posted by 스마트 안전보건

Popular presentation-sharing website Slideshare posted its annual

Zeitgeist summary Thursday, bringing some interesting data to the fore.


For instance, presentations written in Japanese have the highest average

number of slides (42), women use fewer slides than men in their presentations

and the longest presentation uploaded in 2010 is 1,937 slides long.


This year’s report also laid out some data about the 1,000 most popular

presentations on its site this year: 

  • Popular Presentations Use a Lot of Slides: The total number of slides 

    in the top 1,000 slide decks has about 63 slides per presentation.

    The average number of slides for all presentations is 19. 

  • Popular Presentations Use Few Words: Popular presentations use

    about 24 words per slide. 

  • There’s Something About Keynote: While only 2% of all presentations

    were made in Apple Keynote this year, almost 16% of those in the top 1,000

    were made in Keynote.


If you’re interested in digging deeper into what makes a presentation so good

that people want to share it, check out the most popular presentations of 2010.

Eighty-two slide Social Media for Business came in first, followed by Steal This Presentation, which is appropriately a presentation about how to give presentations.

The entire Zeitgeist slideshow is available below:
