@djsarge are you concerned about geotagging photos for minors, or something else related to geotagging?
@KristianStill had heard of that - looks interesting. Due to my son’s older computer he’s prefering browser games at this point tho

Just finished recording a new podcast. Haven’t published a podcast in almost 3 weeks! Yikes! A bit of a different twist in tonight’s…
@jebswebs You’re certainly correct, regular radio addresses have been here forever. Video fireside chats are new. Not sure on the fireplace!
@RobertTalbert I knew he was posting videos but haven’t actually watched any yet since the election. I’m glad to see this on the WH site tho

@kellie80 Idefinitely agree an iPhone app for basecamp would be great. Monitoring the RSS feed via a custom iPhone app would be a good start
@WebGalPat Yes, I bought a Loreena McKinnitt album for my wife about a year ago and we enjoy her music as well. :-)

@russeltarr I think there are some privacy and safety benefits for Google Video compared to Skype. Not sure about port/firewall issues.
@russeltarr I don’t have enough knowledge or experience to fully compare Google Video to Skype, but I’m working on that.
@cindybrock The video quality with Google was comparable to Skype for sure. Not as good as iChat, but I was very impressed.
@OCTechguy tag received. thanks. I’ll get to work on that. :-)
Had to use Safari instead of FireFox to connect with Google Video from my Macbook, however. Video friends didn’t show up in Firefox.

@kellie80 that is excellent! We had a store in lubbock that sold cleaned up DVD movies. I wish you could stream them via Netflix.
