#10 News: what it is? how do you get it? why should we care?

How do you get informed? The way we receive “the news” has evolved over the last century, and technology has played a large roll in that evolution. Just 30 years ago, most people were informed by newspapers and the broadcast news. Today, we have a seemingly endless supply of sources to deliver us news: Facebook, Google, Twitter, Podcasts, Radio, TV… the list goes on and on. In our latest show, Scott and I talk about this evolution and specifically how technology alters our experience. Hope you enjoy!


#9 Box: Cloud Storage – A new way to think about your digital stuff.

The University of Richmond is retiring a traditional NAS/SAN storage solution and introducing Box: a hosted cloud storage (and collaboration) solution. In this episode of UR Tech Savvy, Scott and I talk about all things Box. We begin with a history of the company with some background into Box’s business model and structure. We finish talking about how we see faculty and staff using Box here on campus. Hope you enjoy listening!
