Capturing Life Through Technology

Finally, the Capturing Life Through Technology Podcast is updated and restored!

As mentioned in a previous post, there are two broad reasons to keep a journal: improving your life or capturing your life. As I indicated, this site tends to be more passionate about the latter, and we feel there just isn’t enough succinct information on the best ways to capture your life… using technology.

This is why we are re-releasing this podcast series. It is not exclusively focused on journaling. As you will learn in this first episode, CLTT will include topics such as: amateur photography, picture/video storage and backup, social media, analog to digital conversion (VHS to DVD anyone?), digitizing printed materials (scanning scrapbooks…), digital journaling and much more.

Your feedback is very valuable in this process. I am a podcast junkie when it comes to listening to them, but I’m still learning the best ways to create them. Be patient with us, as we figure out how to make this a dynamite show, with updated content. The first few episodes are re-releases of prior conversations with our founder, but we have many more things lined up, soon to come.

To listen, click the Play > button above this post, or you can actually subscribe to it using iTunes or other podcast catcher software.
