Toward the end of my presentation I spoke about the software tools that I use to help me produce many of the posts you see here.
These are the software titles that I mentioned specifically.
ActiveWords for text expansion.
SnagIt for screen captures and annotating images.
Camtasia for producing the screen videos I used for the presentations in Little Switzerland - and also can be use do produce videos for other formats like Podcasts and youtube.
NOD32 AntiVirus one of the best antivirus programs I have ever used.
Windows Live OneCare A comprehensive suite of tools to keep your PC running smoothly.
I would like to encourage you to take advantage of the trial offers of 30-60 days where you can try before you buy. I think it is a great way to know if any of these tools will work for you.
I have written up some notes and listed some links for similar products in a new wiki page.
Message Board / Software Tools
Although I didn't mention it specifically, you were watching me use a product called MindManager. This is a tool for mind mapping. I use it to as part of the early creative process when generating new material of any kind, and it is also phenomenal for taking notes.
In case you were wondering how I was able to share my handwriting and scrawling diagrams with you; I was using my Tablet PC.
In case you were wondering about the technical details behind the production the vocal was done with
The Isomax MHHP6HH05 (Countryman)
I ran that straight into my T1® using Preset
Category: Vocal Mics
Preset: Headworn Mics
No EQ or Effects except for "Echo Chamber" discussion.
I ran the T1® using the USB connection to a Toshiba Portege M700 Tablet PC.
The application you were viewing was MindManager and I did the recording with Camtasia .
I will be writing up the main speaking points in the wiki and incorporating your comments. I will post a link to the wiki page when it is ready.
