Those of you who have been following this blog for a while know that I love to produce video content. When I changed jobs earlier this year I lost access to some of the equipment that I was using which explains the lack of content over the past three months. Well, the wait is almost over. I have nearly rebuilt my hardware setup, and it's shaping up to be even better than before thanks to my very supportive new employer and to the fine folks at MarketingProfs (including an HD camera for more whiteboard sessions).
I do apologize to you all as I know many of you really get a lot of value through those quick overviews of new technology. In the next couple of weeks I will be back in full force. I've already shot a couple of videos and a demo or two that I will be publishing soon. Buzz Friday posts will also resume, though I am renaming them to "The Weekly Buzz" so I am not confined to do them on Fridays.
I invite you to send me sites/services/program ideas that you would like to see me cover.
In the meantime, here is a complete list of all of the videos I've done to date. Enjoy! (Videos with a * next to them are highly recommended if you have not seen them before.)
