Is there a way to download this presentation without having a Linked-In or FaceBook account?
(Since they are allowing downloads, I don’t feel too bad trying to “hack” there isntance on my using a FaceBook or Linked-In account that I will NEVER have…)
You can create an account specific to slideshare.
On the login/signup pop-up, there is a link all the way at the bottom that says “sign up for a slideshare account”.
Any way to even bypass that?
No. You have to be a registered user of Slideshare or an approved account so that the content cannot be blatantly stolen by all and sundry.
If you want the content- sign up or move on.
