I am creating a new goal for myself. I want to publish & post at least one photo each day to my blog. Here is my first Photo-of-the-day and hope you enjoy them. I took this photo in my gardens @ a week ago with my Nikon D40.

Super Simple Screencasts for Free!

Wednesday, May 30th, 2007

Screeencast-O-maticI just found out about a new site that allows you to make screencasts with extremely little effort called http://www.screencast-o-matic.com . I tested it out and any user should be able to create a screen cast in just few minutes with out installing any software on your computer. I have used expensive products like Camtasia Studio and let me tell you Screencast-O-Matic is much easier and will do almost everything the average screencaster could need. Let’s say you wanted to show someone where to find something in an application, just create a quick screencast in screencast-o-matic and e-mail them the link. Here is a screen cast I did while I was writing this blog post. Currently the screencast is available in Java if you host the video on screencast-o-matic’s servers, but you are able to export to a Quicktime .Mov file and upload it to your favorite video sharing service, ex. Youtube, Revver, Blip.tv. What are you waiting for, go create some screencasts 🙂

Zooomr Mark III launching shortly

Monday, May 21st, 2007

Zooomr Mark IIIZooomr Mark III is launching sometime late this evening or early tomorrow morning. Zooomr is a photo sharing site similar to Flickr but they are trying to re-define the Stock Photography market. You can choose to sell your Photos and sell them between $1-1000 with 90% of the revenues going to you. This should really start the pricing wars in the stock photography market. I’ve never sold any photo’s but i’m almost certain that nobody is giving 90% to the photographer. I really hope this works out for Kristopher Tate & Thomas Hawk as they both deserve some success after putting their blood and sweat into Zooomr.
