Is it a good idea to publish a startup pitch deck online during or before the seed funding process?

One other issue people don't think about is the legality.  If you put something online to promote your company for the purpose of getting investors, that could be considered an general offer to sell a security through general advertising or solicitation, which is prohibited in most cases under federal and state securities laws.  That is especially the case if you put something like "our company is looking for $100,000 for 5% in the company" on the net.
