If the hipper than hip TED talks phenomenon is about "ideas worth spreading", then cloud presentation software Prezi has a ringing endorsement.

In 2009, Prezi became TED's very first investment, and many TED speakers now use the software instead of Microsoft PowerPoint, which has otherwise dominated the space for more than 20 years.
