Podcast Only Song of the Week:
TOPIC: Too many Daves, too little time today as we not only get our very own Dave “Sparky” Saganaki on air, but also talk at length with Dave Cicirelli, the author of the fascinating take on the “truth” behind our social media avatars, “Fakebook: A true Story. Based on Actual Lies.” We wax philosophic and have a great time!
Jay Garmon joins us as well, answers last week’s question and poses this new stumper:
What sci-fi book had the term “Googleplex” in it to describe a large computer cluster – nearly 20 years before the Google we all know and live came to be?
We get time for just one coolsite, but you can also find more about Dave and his book in a variety of locations:
- GCFLearnFree – Great place to find tutorials and tips for basic computer skills. Dave S is using it in Canada to help seniors, but it’s perfect for any age!
- The Fakebook Friends Website – the source of all things fakebook, and where you can find out the “real” scoop on Dave Cicerelli!
- Fakebook Facebook page – be a fakebook facebook friend.
- Amazon’s Fakebook purchase page – you can buy the book here!
The podcast only song of the week this week is by Friendly Fire called “In The Hospital”!
