What, if anything, is your parish or ministry doing to take advantage of the visibility being brought by the Pope's visit to the United States? Are you holding special events? Special Masses? Viewing parties? Special social media campaigns?

I liked the Mac-based small business show. I would love to hear similar shows about different kinds of business. I would describe David's legal practice as a white-collar service business. How would someone use Macs and iOS for a blue-collar service business (plumber, construction, private eye)? How about retail? Small manufacturing? 

Much would be the same, I think, but I believe there would be some unique workflows and processes that could inspire some ideas for people who work in different industries.

I agree
This should be a show type that gets revisited more often. We all love real world scenarios used in small business. Thanks

Catching up on podcasts after vacation and I just listened to #269 - Emergency Preparedness for Geeks. One suggestion I didn't hear was to download the app from your state's emergency management agency if they have one. Several states have created them, including Massachusetts, where I am. Their main feature is to give you public safety alerts based on your location. It includes everything from severe thunderstorms to snow emergencies to civil disturbances and everything. 

Weather apps will give you weather alerts, but the EMA apps usually will give you the whole gamut.

I suggest everyone visit Pat Padley's site and download the audio and presentation deck from his talk at the recent Catholic New Media Conference titled, "What Catholics can learn from ad agencies." It's an excellent resource that provides best practices and lessons for us as Catholic communicators that big companies would pay a fortune to get.

Big companies want to get their message in front of people and want to get their attention and so does the Catholic Church. Pat talks about strategies and tactics for getting your message out in new media. It's very good.

Questions & Tips  - 
 
Transporter users: Do you notice that the desktop software has a massive memory leak? If my Transporters do a big synchronization, they end up eating up all my RAM. On my iMac, it was reporting 15GB in use! This was after thousands of files synched, but it has exhibited similar behavior when it was hundreds or dozens of files.

Coincidentally, all the notifications for those thousands of files also took down Notification Center, I'm pretty sure. It was not responding and was using over 12GB of memory. I had to force-quit it.

On the Live show, David and Katie discussed a piece of software that will automatically quit Dropbox and other bandwidth heavy software under certain scenarios. I thought it was called Tidy Up? But I don't see it in the show notes. Can anyone enlighten me? Thanks.

Little Snitch is different than Tripmode, which has a limited focus. LS blocks things like malware and sneaky bits of marketing emails while Tripmode focuses on saving bandwidth.

We have launched a social media campaign to help welcome Pope Francis to America! Post a photo with our Flat Francis cutout and tag it with #FlatFrancis  We want to show Pope Francis the many faces of the Catholic Church in the United States. We've received more than 850 photos and would love more! Visit www.flatffrancis.org to get the cutout and see all the photos.

Introduction
"My vocation is husband and father. That's who I am. My job is writer. It's what I do."

Father of a growing family and husband to a brilliant wife. I'm currently working as Communications Director of a collaborative of two Catholic parishes and a Catholic school. Before that I was Creative Director of the Pilot New Media at the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston and producer of The Good Catholic Life radio show. And before that I worked as a donor relations manager for the archdiocese and then previous to that I was a Catholic journalist for 10 years in both print and online media.

I'm also one of the pioneer Catholic bloggers, although my current job prevents me from blogging much about Catholic affairs today.

I'm also a technology geek. I've used and owned Apple-brand computers since 1982. I wrote my first web site in 1994.We have no less than 5 Macs currently working in our home and several more stashed away. I'm the guy family and friends call when they're having computer problems.
Bragging rights
I was a charter subscriber to AOL back when it was called AppleLink Personal Edition. I had one of the first Catholic blogs. My boss tells me I'm the leading social media expert in the Church in Boston. All that and a buck will get me a cup of coffee.
