    too complex, difficult until figuring out what is glog and what is a presentation
    too short (only 30 sec), too restrictive, unless pay the premium
    probably the best alternative to the old-fashioned, simple iMovie
    no videos, same as Sliderocket and Slideshare

  2.   Plamen Miltenoff Says: free live-blogging platform

    I saw this article this morning and it seems pretty relevant to where we find ourselves.
