Durham’s Twitterista

leave a comment »

A picture is worth a thousand words and this one describes thousands of tweets about Durham, North Carolina. Because I often share my thoughts and observations about Durham in 140 characters or less, I just had to post this photo of me posing with Major Bull in the CCB plaza by @nkanagat.

Free Web-Based Applications For Business

I had such a good time with my good friend @nkanagat during our recent photo shoot. I recently received a request for photos to be posted to a conference website. I scrambled, looking for photos, and to no avail had none that were up-to-date. Luckily, photog extraordinaire, @nkanagat was available.

Leah’s professional photos

We both value web technology, cloud computing, new gadgets and most importantly free web-based applications. During our photo shoot, we pretty much had a mini-dance party, while we streamed a Pandora station I shared called, “Leah’s Dance Mix.”

Using Picasa, we warmified the photos and made other very minor adjustments (extraordinaire). The photos were then uploaded to Dropbox, which we absolutely love for file sharing, as we both travel domestically and internationally for work.

I emailed three photos in .jpg format to the person who initially requested them using gmail, shared the photos with my Facebook friends, tweeted them and shared the Picasa Web album and am now blogging for you! Wah la! Free file sharing and business has been conducted!

This file sharing process was so quick, low cost and fast! All of the communication and file sharing platforms are free and available for us to use! I encourage you to continue to use applications to carry out your work that are web-based and low cost.

I incorporate these platforms into my work so that I am able to keep my overhead costs low and offer competitive pricing to my clientele.

Enjoy the photos, and if you need to use any, please send a quick email for permission to leah [at] leahdgordon [dot] com.
