Weekend Favs April Twenty One

My weekend blog post routine includes posting links to a handful of tools or great content I ran across during the week.

I don’t go into depth about the finds, but encourage you check them out if they sound interesting. The photo in the post is a favorite for the week from Flickr or one that I took out there on the road.

Sculpture Park Nelson Atkins Museum of Art - Kansas City, Mo

Good stuff I found this week:

ohdontforget – pretty simple service that allows you set text message reminders and send them to yourself and others.

PDF to Word – I have tons of PDFs that I’ve created over the years but sometimes I can’t find the original Word version. This tool converts PDFs back to Word docs. There are online or desktop versions.

iBooks Author – free authoring tools for Macs that helps you create stunning eBooks just for the iPad.

4 The Expanding Potential of Digital Books

I’ve seen the future of interactive business books and it is Nancy Duarte’s Resonate for the iPad.

I’m a big fan of the presentation work of Nancy Duarte and I’ve had Duarte on my podcast to talk about her books Slide:ology and Resonate.

This week Duarte’s team launched Resonate as a Multi-Touch book built in Apple’s iBooks Author tool. Calling it a book in the traditional sense doesn’t do it justice. It’s more like attending a workshop rich in images, stories, video, lectures, and even quizzes, all perfectly displayed on the iPad’s stunning screen.

The book is available through the iTunes store and may be the best teaching tool on the subject of creating presentations that resonate ever created. (I guess you can tell I kind of like it.)
