We’ve been discussing SM and the impact of regular, helpful, interesting and meaningful posts.
We’ll be at the Bandon Public Library, 2-4PM Wednesday August 27th.
Agenda includes review of the previous workshops to provide context for “going” under the hood at a free wordpress.com web/blog.
We’ll also discuss some of the meatier aspects of posting, tagging and categorization.
See you there.

Worth reviewing this weekend…
News about Internet.org creating free network access for users:
The position http://internet.org develops comes from the basic statistic:
Only 1 out of every 3 people can go online.
Why aren’t more people connected?
- Devices are too expensive.
- Service plans are too expensive.
- There’s no mobile network to connect to.
- Content isn’t available in the local language.
- Awareness of the value of internet is limited.
- Availability of power sources is limited.
- Networks can’t support large amounts of data.
“Together we can remove these barriers and give billions of people the power to connect.”
It’s an emerging Standard — the AIA is working on best practices at their annual meeting this year.

I attended your first lecture at the library and missed your July 22 meeting. My question does not pertain to your website, but this is the only way I know of to get a hold of you.
I am building a new home in Bandon, and have to make some decisions on how to wire our house, on Monday. I’m currently using Comspan for internet, phone, and TV, and they will be wiring my new house. However, after talking with the sales person today, I’m wondering if I’m only getting one side of the story…namely, their side. I’ve heard about VoIP, Skype, Netflix, Amazon Prime and how one can watch TV shows on their computers or use their TVs as an internet screen. But, this is waaay over my head.
I was wondering if I could pay you for your insight/advice in what the future may hold and the most efficient/simplest way to “wire” my house.
Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks.
August 27 at 2 pm for the next lab … is correct!
