Attention all information geeks.  Are you unsatisfied with Google News? ICurrent gives you the ability to create your own newspaper. You pick the topic that interests you and ICurrent creates a customized channel. It gets smarter as you  tell ICurrent if you are interested in the news article. Definitely worth a long look.

News, News, News.

Yesterday,  I conducted the workshop. ” How To Create A Blog That People Will Read”.  We had 3 students. 2 students already had a blog using Google’s Blogspot platform and one student was completely new to blogging.

The student who never blogged is a Cuencana that will be developing a new business to help expats with needed services. The other student I am waiting to hear about announcing her blog and the third student is Sharon my wife who started her new blog on quilting.

Please look at the computer courses page for upcoming workshops.

This is Sharon’s homepage below. is one of the best kept secrets on the Internet.  Hey information geeks this is your go to search engine for tweets, links, photos and video. Plus you get the added benefit of finding experts on any subject you desire.

In the screenflow video below I show how to use this powerful user interface.  This is another run, don’t walk to site.

Saturday Walk – From El Centro To Coopera

I love using my camcorder on my walks. It’s fits in the palm of my hand and the HD video writes to the SD card making it very portable and very inexpensive to record video.

I’m using screenflow for all my video edting. It’s much easier to add music, titles and manipulate the different audio levels in the movies. .

News 360

Attention all News Junkies – News 360 is Information Nirvana.  If you are unsatisfied with the news searching results of Google, Yahoo, and Bing then this is a “run, don’t walk to site.

News 360 allows you to customize, save and share all your news interestes. It works great on either your computer Ipad, IPhone or IPod.

Tired of using Google as your main search engine. might be a funny name but there is nothing funny about the excellent results. DDG is different from Google in the following ways:

ScreenFlow – Part One

If you’re not a Mac Geek then Screenflow will be of no interest to you. It is basically the best screencasting, video editing combocasting program around.  What will be of interest to everyone who reads this blog is how I recorded the video and then added original music( which I created using Garageband), voice over, text and annotation. I’m in the learning mode so get ready for some better productions in the future.

The 2:30 video below is about my walk to the barber shop and what I encountered on the way. Basically I treked through 4 Cuenca Barrios without walking through El Centro.

Podcasts – Part Two

In Podcasts Part One I reviewed Podcasts that are produced by large companies or networks.  Podcasts Part Two is all about a Podcast by an individual.

Attention all Geeks. If you are not listening to Nosillacast then you are missing the premier podcast on all things Mac/Apple. Allison Sheridan is a Geek’s Geek yet she is very outgoing and extroverted. If you need help or just want to hang out with Apple Geeks then this is your kind of podcast.

She has a new show every Sunday night. The screenflow videdo below is a quick review of her podcast.
