Tech for Techies

Tech for Techies #16

This is the final episode of Tech for Techies. The show will return to the Twilight Zone from where it came (for the time being). Stephen talks about broadcast transmission, be it radio, television or cellphones. Another Federal Government PSA from the Census Bureau, Profile America. My close explains the present situation at Erie Looking Productions.

In connection with what I bring up in the close, I want you to read a recommendation from LinkedIn:

Tech for Techies #10

This week's edition of Tech for Techies talks about the joy of administration in producing content. Content production, while fun, cannot necessarily be divorced from dealing with funding the operation. Historical precedents from the shortwave realm are brought in to illuminate discussion of today's conditions.
