Do you find press releases boring & lifeless? …

Do you find press releases boring & lifeless?

We do, and so we created this slide deck to substitute for the stereotypical press release to announce SlideShare's funding by Venrock, one of the premier VC firms in Silicon Valley.

No marks for guessing who this is inspired by. Its off course, Meet Henry, the highly popular & hugely infectious presentation genre that was created by Ethos3 Communications. Thanks a ton, Ethos for this.

Just as a note- having Dave Mcclure in this preso was TOTALLY our idea... a big thanks to Dave for agreeing to this
