People love to share information, plain and simple. Social Media has capitalized on this humanistic nature of sharing with others through writing, photos, videos, and beyond. One of these tools, Prezi, is an amazing way to share information in a non linear manner that gives viewers the ability to experience the information through the author's intended path, or to create their own unique route. Coupled with a good layout design which can be created via PhotoShop or Illustrator, the power of Prezi's dynamic movement is able to shine. Currently, I am enrolled in the Design Thinking Action Lab taught at Standford's D.School. The Design Thinking philosophy thus far has left me in awe as I realize that the true solution to a challenge is not through your own personal limited vision, but through the eyes of those caught in the challenge.
