The OnTime podcast (ACTEM)

The Association of Computer Technology Educators of Maine (ACTEM) has a podcast! A darn good one I might add! Last night we had parent/teacher conferences so I was set to walk home in the dark. It's about 3.5 miles and I do it willingly and on purpose...it was a beautiful moonlit night. I started out listening to the Red Sox - Yankees game, but ran into a stretch where both the game and the radio signal weren't doing well. So...I had downloaded the OnTime podcast to my N800 earlier in the day so I decided to listen to that. I had listened to snippets of previous shows, but last night I listened to the whole thing. I'm glad I did! I actually learned some very useful things! Vince, Sharon, and Crystal talked about a variety of topics ranging from Crystal's trip to a conference in San Francisco... the upcoming PackageMaker training...the FOSSED conference (unsolicited...all 3 have attended and Sharon is presenting again this year)...and they also shared some tips and web "finds". Vince really piqued my interest (to the point where I stopped walking for a moment) with his discovery of Shockwave for Linux! He also told about a little known part of the Adobe site where all of their beta and "lab" stuff can be found. Very cool! You can find links to the podcast at http://www.actem.org. I'm sitting here in a high school parking lot using my n800 to blog about this podcast while I wait for my daughter to get out of softball practice...why? Because you really should listen to it!
