Abstract
The Kulit communication software breaks free of the foil on an overhead projector model, with an efficient flexible workflow that goes from the author to the audience. Kulit emphasizes a tactical approach to creating an effective communication, by thinking about what message needs to be communicated, brainstorming about the message content, and then providing the author expert guidance to ensure all the important points are covered in a logical order. Kulit guides, but never limits what an author can do. The final Kulit document is embedded with hyperlinks to original sources, and semantic markers. The semantic markers are a byproduct of the brain-storming stage, but the markers allow Kulit to "know" about sections of the document without forcing the author to enter obscure markup language. The markers allow Kulit to present the document differently based on need. Kulit can present one version on a screen for an audience, and a synchronized high-resolution version on the audience's laptop customized for their role and task. Kulit ensures the audience gets what it needs out of the communication, before during and after the presentation. Kulit allows meeting time to be spent on tactical interaction with the speaker.
