I’m Famous…

Written By: Gary on November 24, 2005 4 Comments

So I was in the newspaper today (image of article) and they ran a photo too so that made it a even more fun. At least I assume the photo was in the printed edition. It’s the local paper by where I work so I’ll have to check it out next week, but I remembered to check on-line and there it was “Expert shares advice on technology deals”.

Here’s the story, people always ask me what tech stuff to buy and how to get good deal on it. So a few jobs ago I started doing sessions for people who were interested and I’d get stuff together and they’d come with questions and I’d tell them what they “needed”. This job I started opening it up to the public for parents (I work for a school district) and residents and I do it near Thanksgiving so I can give them tips on all the Thanksgiving sales that’ll start on Friday. Then they can figure out if it’s worth getting up early for if it’s one of those killer deals. This year one of the paper’s reporters came and voila I’m in the local paper (she had mentioned the dates in the paper too).

    Yeah… I was torn between showing my few slides on the Windows machine or the PowerBook.

    But I decided that I could leave the other one set up and still have easy access to the PowerBook when I wasn’t doing a session (I did more than the paper mentioned since I did several for staff too). When/if they asked I could pass it around, everyone always likes how small and light the 12 inch one is.
