Social Networking Links for Your Day listeners

On today's edition of Your Day, we talked about some of my favorite social networking tools.

Below are some links of the places we talked about:

Phil Yanov on Facebook:

  • Phil Yanov's Facebook profile

Become a Fan of the Your Day page on Facebook:


LinkedIn Professional Networking:

  • View Phil Yanov's profile on LinkedIn

Twitter:

  • On Twitter, I go by my professional monicker, ThinkHammer

Jaiku:

  • I think Jaiku is prettier than Twitter, but there aren't as many people on the service. Still, I like it and think they have some interesting technology for mobile devices that might give them a boost eventually. Again on Jaiku, I am known as Thinkhammer.

Here is a bonus:

  • I discovered Friendfeed after we did the recording. If you care to add me to your list, I use my name Yanov on that service.

I hope these are useful to you. I hope you'll listen in again on Wednesday as we discuss digital cameras and photography.

Photos: Michael Feldman in Clemson

WYK-NotMuch-200804-Clemson-162
We braved the elements and went to Clemson to watch Michael Feldman do his live radio show from the Brooks Center this morning. I was amazed at the number of people it takes to pull off the show. When listening on the radio it seems like there are only a few people involved. Watching it live, and seeing it from back stage, there are a dozen that I noticed (some of which I met) which might mean there are two times that number that I never saw. We enjoyed the show. I have always admired Michael's ability to shoot from the hip as he works a crowd. He is a real pro.

1 Million Listeners? We're headed that way...

Michael Feldman is broadcasting his show, Whad' Ya Know live from Clemson today. An article from 1997 said that he had 1 million listeners at that time. I'm going to guess he's picked up a few along the way as he is now on satellite radio as well. We're headed off to see him at the Brooks Center. I'll hope to have pictures to post a bit later. The show will be live on WEPR, 90.1 FM and lots of other stations as well.

Success with long exposure night photography

One of the upcoming episodes of our Live call in for Your Day is going to feature digital photography. We'll talk about whatever the callers want, but getting tough pictures captured successfully usually seems to be a recurring theme. Here is a long exposure night shot in fog that I took in downtown Greenville. If you like it, why not give it a click and mark it a fave at Flickr. If you've got a photo question you'd like us to answer on the show, why not put it in a comment on this post or drop me an email at the address on the sidebar.

On the radio today -- Steam powered CPU coolers

I was on the radio during lunch today and I didn't even hear it. I would have forgotten completely, except I happened to catch the end of the hour where they mentioned that within the previous hour I had been talking about steam cooled CPU fans with Eric. We recorded this piece some weeks ago and quite frankly I could no longer remember where I first read about it. No matter, I did a Google Desktop search and it remembered for me. I sure do love having Google Desktop function as my outboard brain. Just call me Philly Mnemonic.

How do you convert Hi8 and VHS to DVD?


We recently received the following question:



Hi guys, computer question...

I have an iMac 24", with a 2.16Ghz Duo 2 processor and 1 GB of memory and am not sure what is available or what to purchase.

Minimally, I want to capture segments from my Hi8 camcorder and VHS VCR, then burn to DVD. In addition I'd like to capture still frames from either camera or vcr and print as still pictures.

It's all those early kid pictures and movies. What would you recommend?

Andy


Want to hear the answer? Well, be sure to listen to today's technology segment on Your Day.


Your Day is broadcast across the state of South Carolina via ETV Radio.


In the upstate of South Carolina, listen to WEPR 90.1 FM at noon.

WiFi protection guidelines become law in California

Greetings Your Day listeners. On the air today we talked about a forthcoming law to protect you from inadvertently opening a free WiFi hotspot at your house. Since that recording this has become the law of the land in California.

From The Register:
From 1 October 2007, manufacturers must place warning labels on all equipment capable of receiving Wi-Fi signals, according to the new state law. These can take the form of box stickers, special notification in setup software, notification during the router setup, or through automatic securing of the connection. One warning sticker must be positioned so that it must be removed by a consumer before the product can be used.

We are next live on 12/14/2006!
