TechSmith Corp. announced the availability of Camtasia Studio 3.1, which allows education professionals with no programming or multimedia expertise to quickly create e-learning content for online classes, distance learning, and professional-development courses. "The new Camtasia Studio delivers a remarkably crisp and clear viewing experience, including a side-by-side display of e-Learning content and the instructor," said Troy Stein, Camtasia Studio Product Manager at TechSmith. "It is the only screen recording software with that capability. There is no longer any need to accept a drop off in audio or image quality when combining screen recordings with camera video regardless of their length. This will maximize the effectiveness of e-learning content and give educators the flexibility to create all types of content, from very simple to highly sophisticated."

Some books are different - they make you understand concepts through experiences, rather than theory. This book is one of them, although the first chapter is a little dry. Read through the first chapter, and you won't want to keep the book down for the rest of the book. Although the book is written from a professional photographer's point of view, it has tons of ideas and "organization-tips" for every person who uses a digital camera and wants to better arrange their collection.

And yes, the book is certainly specific to Adobe Bridge, and IView Media Pro - and the author does assume that everyone uses Apple OS X, but only 5% of the book is specific to users of these programs and OS - even if you don't use these applications, you'll benefit from the book. You'll learn how to develop your photo-rating system. Peter Krogh even attempts to make the entire system future proof with a look at how many photographs you might have 10 years from today. He discusses Adobe's DNG format in detail, and provides significant info about metadata. All put together, this is "the book" to buy if you are even remotely interested in DAM.

Before there is an epidemic of Ménière’s in the venture capital community, I am trying to evangelize the 10/20/30 Rule of PowerPoint. It’s quite simple: a PowerPoint presentation should have ten slides, last no more than twenty minutes, and contain no font smaller than thirty points. While I’m in the venture capital business, this rule is applicable for any presentation to reach agreement: for example, raising capital, making a sale, forming a partnership, etc. Read more on Guy Kawasaki's blog...
