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.
