There isn’t a conference or professional gathering lately that doesn’t give a special #hashtag to the event so it can be tracked and trended on Twitter as the audience tweets about how good, bad or ugly the presentation is. I stumbled across this cool looking twitter plugin for Microsoft Powerpoint that basically lets you insert one of 4 live twitter feed apps into your Powerpoint slides starting with a scrolling twitter ticker bar right through to a live crowd meter, voting tool and feedback slide.
It’s all controlled by @names or #hashtags and it brings everything live into your powerpoint slides. They’ve just released an update which has fixed a few bugs and added an extra tool.
