Recently I became aware of Pecha Kucha presentations. As the format is short sharp presentations I thought it would be good to have a quick way of creating the presentation. I’ve created a greasemonkey script that creates a presentation from a page of delicious bookmarks.
The key to this is creating images of the bookmarked webpages. I found the webthumb service which has a well documented api and gives you 100 free credits a month to play with. They kindly gave me 500 credits to do some testing as well.
For the script to work you need to add your own api key from the webthumb service. I realise that having to do this is a bit of a barrier so any ideas about making this easier would be appreciated. Look for the following and paste your api key into the script:
apikey = "Paste your http://webthumb.bluga.net api key here!";
Anyway, this is the first pass so let me know what you think. The video below shows the script in action.
