Spring 2008 Church IT Roundtable Afternoon Live Blog

April 5th, 2008 at 2:54 pm » Comments (0)

I’m provided some live updates and coverage on what went on earlier this afternoon here below, live feed, starting at 3 pm Central. I invited Nick Nicholaou to provide content as a panelist as well (this was a last-minute thing, otherwise I would have invited more to participate, CoverItLive supports up to 10 contributors and […]

I’ve intentionally stayed away from using Twitter for a while (not that I haven’t had an account!); it’s just one more thing to deal with and I already have enough profiles, blogs, and other random accounts. But it seems to be getting more popular among some Church IT bloggers, and I’m starting to miss things […]

MinistryTECH and Roundtable canceled due to weather

April 1st, 2008 at 1:09 pm » Comments (1)

The recent storms in Oklahoma have gotten so bad and caused so many issues with airport delays and other damage that it appears the MinistryTECH conference and the Church IT Roundtable have been canceled, or at least postponed to the near future. This is unfortunate, but organizer Terrell Sanders was quoted as saying, “It’s disappointing, with […]

And with that…I’m registered for MinistryTECH!

March 3rd, 2008 at 10:51 pm » Comments (0)

With one month left and heeding Tony’s warning that it’s down to the wire, I finally registered for MinistryTECH! I still have to book travel/hotel etc. but at least this takes care of the registration itself. I took care of the Roundtable registration the day it opened, so I’m at opposite ends of the spectrum!

Announced by Jason Powell, it’s on Saturday, April 5th, the day after the MinistryTECH conference. I’ve registered, but I’m not 100% sure I’m going. But I hope it works […]

Trip Planning Made Simple

February 3rd, 2008 at 9:00 am » Comments (2)

You still have to actually make your reservations, but a service called TripIt makes it easy to track everything from there on out. Just forward your confirmation emails to [email protected] (no signup necessary) and wait for them to rock your inbox. Well, I haven’t tried it myself yet, but that’s what Joel Spolsky says (approximately), […]

On My Way Back, and Thanks!

October 5th, 2007 at 10:00 am » Comments (0)

Well, I’m at the airport with plenty of time before my flight. Because it’ delayed by almost two hours; the plane hasn’t arrived yet. I can’t find a power outlet; there’s free WiFi here (better than I can say for my hotel) but my laptop won’t last three hours. I hope everyone else from the […]

Planet CITRT, aggregated Roundtable feeds

October 4th, 2007 at 10:54 pm » Comments (0)

Matt Bradshaw at COR was kind enough to set up feed aggregation to pull together the blog feeds of known bloggers at the Church IT Roundtable. You can view the feeds all together at http://www.bitshepherd.com/planet/citrt/ and get the feed at http://www.bitshepherd.com/planet/citrt/atom.xml (autodiscovery doesn’t work yet, so you’ll need to add that URL directly to your […]

Church IT Roundtable Pre-Dinner, Wednesday Recap, and More!

October 4th, 2007 at 12:27 am » Comments (3)

I’ve taken around 300 photos while at the Church IT Roundtable at COR, but I haven’t had time to sort them out and post a lot of the good ones. I did, however, upload fifteen of them (so far) to a new CITRT set on Flickr that I took of the tables eating dinner courtesy […]

Room B Morning Discussion Notes

October 3rd, 2007 at 1:22 pm » Comments (2)

I’m a part of Room B at the Church IT Roundtable, one of four individual rooms of discussion. So far, the first video sharing between the four rooms hasn’t worked yet, but we’ve had some good discussion within our room. The topics we’ve discussed so far are: Storage and backups Mozy and MozyPro for offsite […]
