You really can do almost anything online

Catching up on so much techie news makes me almost sad at how little time I have to stay current on everything any more. To give you an idea how ancient I am, I used to buy things off eBay when you could actually read every single new auction for the whole site. I scanned every new listing every morning for a while. I quit doing that when it took 2 hours for me to get through everything. Luckily I had a job that only required about 2 hours of work a day, so I still had plenty of time to do my job.

What does that have to do with anything? Nothing at all. I tend to ramble. I blame the ADD.

The real point of this post is to point out the awesome online tool formatpixel I just read about today. Using formatpixel, you can create, well, stuff you probably would have used PowerPoint for in the past:

Create your own online magazines, fanzines, brochures, catalogues, portfolios and more. Using the formatpixel online editor you too can design page based projects, layout text, upload your own images, add interactivity and customise their appearance.

Edit the order of pages in your projects by moving, inserting or deleting pages to create multi-page presentations.

There are some really cool demonstrations of the power of the tools at formatpixel (w00t for me – 3 time repetition for increased brain implantationility (Yes, I made that word up) to help you remember the name). If I had any creative talent, I’d put something together to show off the site. Instead, I’ll point you to the article on TechCrunch where I first read about formatpixel (and a 4th time!).
