Unless you are talking about your inbox’s capacity. You can either pay your email provider for more disk storage or incorporate the cloud into your file management strategy. Sending emails with giant attachments gets old quick – and expensive if you are paying by the bit. Instead of ducking, put those attachments in the cloud.
Brian Curry from YouSendIt will help you corral your inbox quota using the cloud to get those attachments under control. Find out more on the SHOW PAGE. If you have an overloaded inbox, this is the show for you. We’ll also give you two great reasons to go to Vegas in May – Interop and CPM 2010 West.
If you use Gmail, your free producer tip of the week is to take Gmail’s priority inbox to the next step using the ‘Super Nick Email System’. Never look at an email more than twice again.
Each year the technology industry makes a pilgrimage to the desert. The International Consumer Electronics Show is [insert a "doesn't get any bigger than this"] metaphor. Tom is on the floor as I type …or he is on a plane …I don’t handle that …anyway, Tom is at CES as far as you are concerned.
So, what are you going to do while I put together a great CES show? Listen to a new Week in Review and and an encore presentation of our Contingency Planning & Management 2010 coverage. Find out more and get Week In Review links on the SHOW PAGE.
What’s coming up on TechTalk?

This week, we bring you our 2010 GovTech coverage after a new Week In Review that includes a CES Kick-Off with Robin Raskin – find out more on the SHOW PAGE. It’s our first show of the year, but we have luck on our side.
Most people from the south just accept black-eyed peas will be there at some point on New Year’s Day. It is supposed to be lucky. Sounds like a wiley turn of the century marketer with too many beans and snake oil. But if finding out historical what-nottery is your thing, there are some links below with plenty of people telling you how it really started (ie what each read on Wikipedia). I am sticking with the wiley marketer. I am not sure how it started, but I can’t argue with tradition – especially when said tradition includes hog jowl for flavor. If you don’t know what a jowl is…you probably do not want to know. What does all of this have to do with anything? Nothing much. It just looks better when the boss clicks through to make sure the website is being updated if there are more words. So, let’s all just keep real quiet and keep reading…you’ll get your tech fix. And that’s how the first World War really started. Thanks, Grampa.
Since 1967, The Consumer Electronics Show has wowed us and showed us the technology we would covet over the next year. The show started in New York but migrated to Las Vegas after a period of two shows per year – one in the east and one in the west. With whirlwind product cycles, the Internet, virtual conferences and shrinking T&E budgets, CES has done quite well to keep attracting the crowds. A few notable debuts at CES include the VCR in 1970, the Laserdisc in 1974 (yes, SEVENTY FOUR!), HDTV in 1998 and many more… including a 10 year anniversary of the Xbox’s 2001 debut. Happy Birthday, Xbox!
Our conference coverage continues this week when we air Tom’s visit to the 2010 Contingency Planning and Management EAST show at NYC’s Javits Center. Commissioner Bruno from the NYC OEM and Amy Herman took time to speak with Tom at the early November event. Find out more about their work and other guest on the SHOW PAGE.
We are still taking suggestions and feedback for 2011. What topics are important to you? What topics can we dive into that are still alien to you? We pride ourselves in devoting 3/4 of our show to in depth interviews with guests. While most news outlets bring you tech appetizers, we cover a topic from soup to nuts.
Next week, we are going to close the year with our FLASH conference coverage. We have a contingency if that doesn’t work out… like related news to keep you busy while we try to find that audio file…
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Now that you are as stuffed as the bird, let’s get back to TechTalk before we are all caught in the holiday rush.

And finally, we also wanted to let you know about:
Computer Outlook Talk Show Announces Foundation to Repurpose Computers to Under-Resourced Children and Families of Deployed Service Personnel
Non-Profit Outlook Foundation’s mission to repurpose cast away technology into the hands of those who need them most
Computer Outlook Talk Show announced the launch of the Outlook Foundation, a non-profit organization created to refurbish and repurpose computers; providing them to children whose economic background prevents them from having equal educational opportunities, as well as to deployed US service personnel and their stateside families in an effort to help maintain communication with loved ones. Beyond helping children and our service families, Outlook Foundation will also use its resources to reduce the amount of hazardous technology waste in landfills by recycling remaining technology through certified organizations.

The show will air Sunday at 1pm EST. Due to sports coverage on KFNX, you can catch us even earlier on Sunday.
Here at TechTalk, we not only talk about the cloud – we rely on it. We use WordPress.com for our website, Google for our imitechtalk.com mail and a plethora of other services that rely on the cloud – Twitter, bit.ly and Flickr come to mind at first thought. While the majority of this data is data we want you to see, we want to be sure it will be there and safe from other people trying to pass along information as us. What does all of that rely on? Security.
This week, Tom is joined by Craig Balding who was our very first Cloud Computing guest. Craig will let us know what is going on with service providers, how security models are evolving and a new project he is developing. Find out more on the SHOW PAGE. Don’t forget that the show will be on at 1pm EST …also don’t forget that time goes back an hour everywhere except Arizona.
Don’t forget that Friday, November 5 is GrowSmart Biz conference at the Renaissance Washington DC with friends at the Washington Business Journal. Be sure to tell Shashi Bellamkonda hello if you see him…or just tweet him.
