This election was pretty interesting, especially in the use of social media/web 2.0. I think one of the coolest things about what has happened over the past few years is the web has brought us closer to the action – inviting us to participate more. Some would argue that social media has caused us to be isolated behind a 15 inch screen, I disagree. Not being a big political person – I’ve been drawn into the discussion and actually look forward to conversing and learning more and more – because I’ve been invited to be a part of the discussion; I almost feel like I’ve been given a ‘behind the scenes’ pass to what’s happened over the past few months.

Oh yes, coming soon to your church: ChurchMetrics.com. I know we need another CMS system like we need a hole in the head, but come on… this is LifeChurch.tv! The same guys who brought you YouVersion.com and One Prayer. Why does this excite me? Well…

1. I am not at all happy with our current CMS system, or the one we used before. The main reason is that the user interface is so 90’s, very clunky and there’s a huge learning curve to begin to use it.

2. Back to the user interface. This looks very web 2.0, which means I can probably understand it and begin using it immediately.

3. It’s free.

4. It’s web-based.

5. And lastly it doesn’t seem like it’s the “all things to all people” church application. So that means that it’ll be GREAT at doing a few things – which I like.

When will it come out? Not sure, but I’ll let you know as soon as I know. Until then, keep you eye on their Vimeo page for updated videos.

Yes that’s right I now have the coolest signature EVER, thanks to wisestamp.com (FireFox plugin). As you can see it links to all the cool social media sites out there. My good friend Vince hooked me up with this, as he usually does with the coolest and latest things… Go get you some now.

Pretty cool huh?

Wow.

We watch all our TV via the internet. And it sure would be nice to have it on the big screen (if you consider a 32″ 4:3 Toshiba a big screen). So I’m workin on an inexpensive solution, which includes some video adapting & wireless keyboard & mouse. When I happened upon this beauty. Apple has such stlye, check it out (and it’s affordable too!).
