Earlier this week, at the DEMO emerging technologies conference, several start ups gave six-minute PowerPoint-free presentations about how their companies could revolutionize particular industries.

Companies like E*TRADE, TiVo, and Google have all launched new products at the event in previous years. Yesterday, a company called Supercool School, announced its plans to reinvent online education, by allowing people to quickly and easily start their own web-based schools.
