The Tablet at Work

I just got out of a meeting in which I was working with a group of people to hone a PowerPoint presentation. I'm happy to say I've discovered a(nother) really great use for a Tablet PC.

I had the preso loaded on my machine, which was connected to a projector. As we went through the slides, people in the room suggested changes, and I was able to mark the slides up with ink in real time, making notes about what should be changed. It was like having a whiteboard integrated into PowerPoint. I was then able to email the PPT file to our PR firm and let them see our notes. The productivity boost was visceral. Very cool!
