Asia is zooming!

Fresh from the Prezi blog:

Having lived in Asia myself, it’s really nice to see that Prezi has started to grow in Korea and Japan. I felt really impressed with the energy and all the creative use of Prezi.



Prezi for Dummies – the Korean translation of last year’s original US release – was brought to life with the help of Jihoon Roh (upper left). He’s the guy that helped us to get our first Korean font set. Prezi lecturer Do-won Lee (upper right) wrote another book for the Korean market which introduces Prezi’s best practices and a manual. Dowon also created a nice prezi introducing his book. Check out Daum, Facebook or Naver to join the Korean buzz, these community sites for more info.

We also had a great Prezi Night Tokyo party where the first Japanese Prezi book was introduced.
The tickets for the party sold out in a few hours! You can keep up with Japanese community on both facebook and twitter.

Watch TED head Chris Anderson’s prezi

Fresh from the Prezi blog:

Chris Anderson does not speak often at TED events. He is the curator of the world famous conference, where top brains share their ideas worth spreading in the topics of technology, entertainment and design. This year, Chris spoke at TEDGlobal in Oxford. In his closing speech, he talked about how online videos change the way we interact, learn, think and consume in this increasingly shrinking world we live in.

“Chris Anderson shows how Prezi can be used effectively in a linear talk like this which has the feeling of a story and a journey. But what really made this talk good was Anderson’s idea and the simple organization of the idea around a metaphor,” says presentation guru Garr Reynolds in his related blogpost. Like other experts, Garr puts the emphasis on the importance of the speaker’s qualities and ideas, while he says Prezi has the potential if it is used well.
