– Doug is a featured daddy blogger in an article about his writing and it’s a walk down memory lane back to PodCamp and the budding friendship that has blossomed for him and Sorg.

– “Daddy, your friends are on TV.” Thanks to Chromecast, Doug generally watches the show on TV at home with his son.

– The awesome thing of the week:

Chilla: Everypost ( – It lets you cross-post across Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, LinkedIn, tumblr and Dropbox.  The boys talk comparison to Constant Contact, Hoot Suite, Tweet Deck and Radiant 6.

Sorg: MindMeld ( – It identifies key concepts and meanings in conversation and helps organize thoughts.

Spoon:  Shoebox ( – Turns your phone into a scanner to help with your family history search.

– Tip of the Week:  Buy the Family Tree Maker (Nova Development) (@$75.00 value) which gives 6-month access to records via for free and it updates your account online.  Listen to the show for additional tips.

– Android Wear!  How will it stack up to other wearable tech? (We’re looking at you Pebble.)

– Things to look forward to in the not too distant future: Ted X, Build Conference, and Microsoft announcement for new Office – with (wait for it) first release for iPad?
