A Staggering Screen Experience: Top Ten 2 Minute Tech Tip Videos for 2014

I recorded the first 2 Minute Tech Tip video on August 29, 2014. Since then (as of this writing), 34 people have presented tech tips, and more are on the way. Some are recorded via Skype, so the Tipsters can stay in their pajamas. The rest are recorded in-person, using my trusty iPad2. All are edited and assembled using iMovie. I have great fun doing these videos, and I'm reasonably certain the people presenting the tips had fun, too (though for #3 I thought I might have to perform CPR on Oracle ACE Luis Weir, and Oracle ACE Director Rich Niemiec in #2 scared me a little).

So here, based on YouTube's analytics, are the Top 10 most popular 2 Minute Tech Tips for 2014. Big thanks to all of the Tipsters who participated, and congratulations to those who made this list.

Twitter Tuesday: Top 10 Tweets - December 2-8, 2014

Here they are: the Top 10 tweets from @OTNArchBeat for the last seven days (December 2-8, 2014).

If you're wondering why positions #1 and #2 are occupied by the same message, allow me to elucidate. Note that while the messages are the same, the #1 tweet was posted at 9pm EST on Dec 5, while the #2 tweet was posted at 9am EST on Dec 4. So, same message, different tweets, and different audiences -- that is, unless some people are spending way too much time on Twitter.
