Tech Tip Tuesday & Wired Wednesday...

Behold the mighty power of the blog!

Keystone buddy (as well as good friend) Scott Merrick (University School- Nashville, Vanderbilt Center for Science Outreach and general renaissance man) has announced new blog and podcast plans. The concept is already way-cool and will only get better as more people tune-in. Although this content isn't directly EVC related, it is a superior example of ever-evolving technology communication.

Here's how Scott's idea came about:

"During the academic school years 2003-2005 the tech coordinators at my school created weekly computer tips cards for the teachers, printed and delivered them already singly-perforated for hanging on a ring, on a hook, on their computer monitors. Many are still hanging there. I just started thinking about how valuable these are and how they are just prime content for an audio cast, then I got to work on the concept and started recording."

See for yourself how this idea translated to Scott's newest blog,
  • Tech Tip Tuesday

  • Future shows will feature teachers and other TCs reading the cards, and every one is linked in the shownotes page so they can be printed by anyone, anywhere or just referenced on the computer. The first one contains 6 tips for regular maintenance, the 2nd a detailed description of how to defrag your PC.

    Check out the TTT link, use a tip or two, and maybe it will inspire you to envision how one of YOUR ideas/projects can enter the realm of podcasting and blogland!

    Very nice of you, Joan. I greatly appreciate your sharing: That's what it's all about (it's really not the hokey-pokey--it's the sharing!)! I'm VERY excited about TTT3, "File Management," which features new music from the Podsafe Music Network as its background. I just LOVE this stuff! And Snacks4theBrain! episode 21 this week will feature an interview with science writer Bill Snyder, editor-in-chief of Vanderbilt Medical Center's Lens Magazine.
