I Prezi, You Prezi, We Prezi

Prezi, the fun slide-presentation application we spotlighted a few months ago, has taken things to the next level with Prezi Meeting, which allows up to 10 people to collaborate on a Prezi presentation in real time.

The operative advantage: “Text, images, and videos added to the prezi are visible to everyone, giving remote team members the sensation of being in the same creative space together.” As part of a creative team whose members — editors and designers — all work in separate locations, I find that aspect of Prezi Meeting enormously appealing, because at some point in the creative process there’s no substitute for sitting around a table with your team and collectively ripping something apart and putting it back together. That’s not exactly what Prezi Meeting allows, but it’s a welcome step in that direction.
