A high-school-era friend of mine, Waldo Rochow, recently did something astonishing to one of my cartoon-blog posts from the Nonprofit Technology Conference earlier this month.
Here’s the original. …And now, check this out:
Test of Cottingham Art on Prezi
It’s a completely different way of looking at exactly the same content… and a whole new use for Prezi. I love it for three reasons:
- Waldo took the time to make something I made into something awfully cool. This, I instrinsically love.
- We’re a diverse species, us humans, and we have some very different ways of learning. Finding qualitatively different ways to present the same information opens up an opportunity to reach more people, more effectively.
- The time investment is low, and the Prezi learning curve isn’t very steep. Which makes this a wonderfully accessible way for folks to experiment with transforming their own content.
What do you think? And are there other tools you’re using that have this kind of untapped potential?
