Idling online the other day, I came across a presentation on the Piraeus Lion, created and posted on P-E Fronning's Martin Klasch blog.
The topic is interesting, but I was particularly impressed with the way that P-E used the embedded presentation to communicate a large amount of content in short and manageable pieces.
Says P-E, "I've been familiar with the Piraeus Lion, and its history, for awhile. After reading a Wikipedia article on the subject, I thought it might be interesting to others. A fellow blogger wrote something about Google Docs, which seemed to be a great way to communicate this content, so that's what I did."
