A quick update about what’s going on around the network to keep you in the loop.  I had the opportunity to meet with local TV personality Steve Dotto who for the last 15 years hosted the well known TV show Dotto Tech keeping us all up to date on all things technology related. Well he’s now broadcasting a weekly show on AM 650. Our chat turned into an interview all about RTN which will be aired at 6pm this evening. You can tune in LIVE here http://www.am650radio.com or download the podcast later from the same site or Steve’s own site http://www.dottotech.com.
I was checking out some of Steve’s great content and found a really neat productivity tool I’d love to share. It’s a little known website, still in beta and FREE, called If This Then That or www.ifttt.com. It basically let’s you automate things like if; my favourite author posts a new blog piece email it to me or even better tweet it out for me automatically. I’ve used it to Tweet quotes or share videos that I favourite or even notify my if someone posts an advert on craigslist for something I’m in the market for. Check it out… Here’s Steve’s video explaining it, as you’d expect,  much better than I can http://youtu.be/MVM5deFMJD8.  Have fun and be sure to share any new recipes with me on Twitter @markwrightmba ;-)
