Computers For Communication

Be Sociable, Share!

laptop computerI wrote the following blog post in November 2006. The story is still relevant today, although those small laptops have often been replaced by tablets – about the same size and so convenient. I purchased an iPad – the larger size – and it’s become my favourite possession.

My grandson, at age ten, is a budding producer, thanks to the iMovie app on the iPad. He regularly creates movies and sends them to me. I interact with him using Messenger, or virtually face-to-face with Facetime. Every day I find another use for my tablet.

Anyway, here is the original post:
“I was at the local computer store the other day, and as usual, I had a look at their computers. Besides all of the wide and wider screen laptops, there were two models that were about 7 inches wide and I wondered why anyone would want such a small laptop.

Well, a few days later, I found out the answer. We were at an anniversary party in North Bay and I noticed one older gentleman sitting at a table typing on one of those laptops. I went over to check it out and tried to start up a conversation. The man didn’t answer, but continued to type, so I looked at the screen. He was explaining that he had throat surgery two years before and was no longer able to talk. Then he went on to type about how much he was enjoying the party. At that point, someone else came over and tried to speak to him. Rather than type his explanation all over again, the man had saved all of his past comments and showed them on the screen whenever specific questions were asked.”

How are you using technology to interact with people?

Exposure and Profit – Join Me

Be Sociable, Share!

Kelly McCauseyAs many of you know, I travel to Atlanta twice a year to attend a marketing workshop called NAMS (Novice to Advanced Marketing Systems). I’ve done that for the past seven years and have met a number of high level online marketers as a result. One of them is a smart young lady named Kelly McCausey.

Last spring, a number of the NAMS presenters traveled up here when Kelly (in the photo) decided to host an event near the Toronto airport. Called Exposure and Profit, it was attended by a small group, and the event was a big hit as you can see from the comment Chad left on Facebook.

Because of the positive response, Kelly has decided to do it again. This year’s workshop is May 1st to 3rd, with a small group mastermind on the Friday, and the main event on the weekend. Kelly has gathered a terrific line-up of presenters, covering everything from content, to social media, to membership sites, to using video.

I missed the mastermind sessions last year so made sure I registered for that this time. Those small groups were so targeted and helpful that some people came just for that one day. In fact, it has a separate price so you can do just the one day, or the entire event. One of the small group leaders is a well-known author and marketer coming all the way from California. Saturday night even ends with an amazing buffet included in the price. Kelly has thought of everything!

I will be attending the whole time and can’t recommend this highly enough.

I know you won’t be disappointed. There is no pitchfest, and if you sign up through my link I will also work with you for an hour to plan your strategy as a result of what you learn.

P.S. I look forward to seeing you at the event and introducing you to these amazing marketers.

Cathy Byrnes on Mindmapping

Be Sociable, Share!


This webinar is an interview with mindmapping expert, Cathy Byrnes, about how she uses mindmaps for everything from her daily to-do list to studying in university. Right now I’m reading a book by the creator of the mindmapping concept and he has some great brain exercises in it. I’m afraid the ones that have to do with remembering numbers are a bit of a challenge for me. Not sure what that means.

Happy Computing,
Carol
