National High 5 Day! http://www.nationalhighfiveproject.org/

First piece of tech every photographer needs (outside of camera & lens) is a good memory card.  Get it as fast as possible, you will be surprised by the difference it can make.

Fastest memory card that your camera can handle…need to check either manual or a site such as http://dpreview.com. No reason to spend more on a card than needed

Acer R7 Laptop Hands On Review

My eight-year-old daughter has been using an old Windows XP laptop. My concerns for parental guidance and family control would be better served on a Windows 7 or 8 laptop. A Windows 8 machine would move her into the latest touchscreen technology.

I’d started shopping with the idea of getting her onto a new Windows 8 laptop sometime around XP’s demise. Windows 8 became an easy choice as she had no issues using the touch interface and understanding the gestures.

Things I wanted in a new laptop for her were Windows 8, touchscreen, 15 inch screen, light and thin as possible. I thought about some of the Lenovo Flex options by kept coming back to the Acer R7. For those of you who have played with a R7, it has a unique hinging mechanism. It was fairly well beaten up by the reviewers because of the touchpad placement. As I looked at the ability to move the touchscreen to several positions, the touchpad placement really wasn’t an issue because my daughter tends to use a mouse. My thought was with the excellent keyboard placement of the R7 and the touchscreen; she may not need the touchpad at all.

3D Printing Overview from Omaha North High School

I recently sat down with Jackson Cutsor, a Senior from Omaha North High School in Omaha, NE and talked about 3D printing and some of the work that Jackson is doing at North.  Madeline Nelson was on the camera and big thanks to the award winner educator Therese Laux who helped get it all together.  I am excited about partnering with Omaha North in the future for additional podcasts!
