So, there you are....far from home without an ounce of high speed internet in sight. You're in the middle of Africa, Asia or South America. There's no Starbucks on every corner from which you can suck up some hi-speed. You're a missionary, and you need to get your stories of inspiration and need back home...but you're simply armed with a dial-up connection or a mobile device. We're here to help.
On today's podcast, the Geeks focus on low-bandwidth technologies that can help spread the good news in an area of the world that is bandwidth-challenged. We talk about why blogs are so important for a missionary and how pictures can tell 1,000 words about your overseas experience. We chat about setting up a blogger.com and a flickr account before you go so you can keep folks at home inspired about your mission. We talk about how a podcast, vodcast or mailing list would be a great idea as well. It's all about keeping people involved in your mission the best you can.
But, before we get there, we wade thru your giant swamp of user feedback. We talk about why a Christian geek would care about the environment, the difference between wordpress.com and .org, and address lots of Mac vs. PC followup.
The geeks also ponder IEDay, limits on Gmail Filestore, and ponder how Sam got his Geek-Ministry started....
All this, and much more, on this weeks Geeks and God podcast.
