Are you going to implement TeX support?

Prezi looks like a great piece of software, but the question that I immediately have is whether you are going to implement TeX/LaTeX support for mathematical formulas. This is almost crucial for any math/physics presentation, and would be completely great if implemented!

Hi dk

one of our founders (Peter) is a computer scientist and lecturer, and he loves LaTeX. So we will do it.

But we need some help from people who would use it. Are you interested in helping? No coding needed at all, just thinking about how to do it, maybe creating some examples now using PDF, and later in the prototype.

Thanks for your answer! I'm really looking forward seeing some TeX implemented.

I would love to help, but I have a rather limited time available now. If any help is needed, feel free to contact me ( I'm definitely in for suggestions/testing etc.

Implementing this should be fairly simple; there are a whole bunch of ready-made JavaScript tools that take an existing web application and just replace $...$ with LaTeX math. Look for jsmath and TeX the World.
