An article I wrote in Church Production Magazine a couple of years ago is quoted in a great book: Special Event Production: The Resources

The author sent me a copy and it looks great! And I’m not talking about the quote. The rest totally rocks.

I found a great blog entry entitled: Do You Have Great Tech Support for Your Church? We Do and Here’s How. It talks about how we can do better at supporting our church’s staff’s computers. This challenged me. I’m not sure my church has the best tech support and we’ve got the talent to pull it off, so maybe we should just do it.

Gizmodo has a Video of Bill Gates Showing off his Expensive Table. Now, this isn’t just any table, it’s a multi-touch display.

We’re getting used to touch screens, but multi-touch is a technology that lets you use multiple fingers. This is what the iPhone uses to enable you to do things like scroll through contacts, shrink and grow pictures by pinching and pulling the corners and much more.

The video doesn’t say what OS the “Surface” table uses, although if it’s from Microsoft, I bet it’s some flavor of Windows (Vista 2.0 anyone). With that said, it’s apparently not being marketed to consumers but restaurants (who might use it as a high-tech self service ordering & checkout center) and other business.

It looks really cool. Oh well back to my old iBook.

New Advertising Model

Paid Advertisement
You might have noticed that I’m not doing adsense any more. You might have also noticed that I’m blogging a lot more and that some of the posts start with the phrase “paid advertisement” (like this one) that’s a result of consumer generated advertising from Payperpost.com. The way my traffic here works, I just wasn’t getting enough eyes for adsense to work.

With PayPerPost, I’ve made more money faster and have been more motivated to write more. (That’s good for all of us.) So if you’re a blogger, this is a great way to pick up some extra $. I’m not quitting my day job yet mind you, but who knows? A month ago I’d only made $11. With more work, this month was ten times that.

Give it a try.

Sometimes I hear something that isn’t a surprise. This is one of them: Research confirms theory that all modern humans descended from the same small group of people, so does Genesis.
