Big is a minimal presentation system with a simple rule: the text on every
slide is embiggened until it fills your screen.
It works pretty okay with focused presentations and plenty of narration,
and it will make long bullet-lists look terrible.
You create presentations with big by downloading it and editing simple
div elements become slides. You style your presentations
with CSS, just like web pages.
Then you can either post your slides
to GitHub to share with the world, or boot up a local development
server to conference-wifi-proof them.
curl -L http://bit.ly/big-quick > index.html
python -m SimpleHTTPServer
(then open localhost:8000)
