The old model for running teleseminars is broken. How can I say that? Because I’ve participated in a lot of them, and I’ve run a lot of them myself. Here are the problems as I see it: 1. All the beeps and “background noise” drives me absolutely nuts. 2. Teleseminars are always 1-way: Me talking to everybody else. Very little engagement. 3. Most conference call systems stink. They really do. Talk to anybody who’s been doing teleseminars for very long […]

Have You Ever?

You see sometimes when you spend your life with computers and the Internet you have to deal with the issues that come with them. You see there are dangers out there to watch out for and most of the time we are way too busy to see them or to try and prevent the mayhem they can cause.

In the end it worked out but there is no way that I would want that again. So I got on schedule to do back ups.
