#FollowFriday – @Dansr – Mama, Musician, Goddess of Perk, and a damn fine person.

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor August 5, 2011 Follow Friday

I follow a lot of different creative people on Twitter. I follow a lot of creatively different people on Twitter. And I follow some people who are just good folks. But sometimes you find someone who is creative, different, and still good folks. To demonstrate my meaning, I give you @Dansr.

by Scott Roche July 29, 2011 Follow Friday

This particular Follow Friday was one I was sure had already been snapped up. Thomas Gideon aka cmdln is as geeky and podcaster-y as it gets. He’s hosted the Command Line podcast and blog for quite some time, talking about open source, security, and programming. He’s also a part of the Living Proof Brewcast with […]

That tagline just about says it all. I first got to know Jeff through his efforts at the short story anthology podcast he ran, Great Hites. I submitted a handful of stories to it and that was the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Jeff is an excellent writer and an all around good guy.

#FollowFriday – @steven_moffat: Writer, producer, and top dog of Doctor Who and Sherlock

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor July 8, 2011 Follow Friday

I’ve been a fan of Doctor Who for a long, long, long time. I stumbled across the show in the early 1980’s and have been watching ever since. Some fans of the old series cringe and cried when the new series came out in 2005, but I stayed with it, enjoying the higher production values […]

#FollowFriday – @PCHaring: Writer, Podcaster, Violist, Voice Actor, and the most interesting Accountant I’ve found.

by Doc Coleman - Nifty Tech Editor June 24, 2011 Follow Friday

There are some professions that just have a reputation for being boring. Politicians rate high on that list. As do lawyers. And even librarians. But topping the list of boring professions by far are accountants. There is just something about accounting that tends to make people’s eyes glaze over. But we’re not talking about boring […]

Google Docs Wrap Up

by Scott Roche June 20, 2011 Service

I hope you enjoyed the last two reviews of Google Docs. There’s a lot more to this service/software and I’m sure I’ve only scratched the surface.
