Google’s Power of Presentation

The big buzz today at Web 2.0 Expo is this new PowerPoint-type application that Google is going to announce sometime later this summer. It would seem that Google suddenly solved the global warming crisis.

Am I alone in wondering why Google, a company with more neurosterone (my term for ‘smart hormones + wallet muscle’) than any other Internet company in history, would waste its resources buying a start-up like Tonic Systems to roll out a product which is, at best, a faded, web-age facsimile of Powerpoint? Lets just hope the in-house geniuses are working on something (else) ultra-spectacular.

(Okay, I know there are more uses for Tonic’s document extraction technology, but they are talking about presentations on the Google blog, so we are going to stay focused on just that!)
