"With Projeqt, your presentations never remain static. Pull in live tweets or blog feeds, insert an interactive map, add audio notes or stream videos. Let your presentations be as dynamic as you are."

"The title of this essay is "How to Ask a Smart Question" and I have tried to lay out some general guidelines and pitfalls to avoid when you pose questions to gain a greater understanding. I wish I could tell you that asking such questions comes easily; it doesn't. Rather, it's an intellectual habit or a disciplined way of thinking that you can only learn by doing. After all, an expert can give you pointers on shooting a free throw or hitting a golf ball, but you only get good at it with practice."
