A 15 minute screencast explaining just what a blog is, a look at some typical blogs and a very simple demo on how you can set up your own blog to get your presence on the web.
New Movie Chapter Feature
A new feature introduced with this screencast is the introduction of movie chapters to allow you to jump to a specific place in the movie. The chapters are only available if you subscribe and view the movie in iTunes or copy the movie from the direct link below to your pc or mac. They won't work if you stream the movie directly from the link below but you'll still be able to view the movie without chapters.
In iTunes, play the movie in a separate window and the chapter menu will appear as shown below.
Click on the menu and keep the mouse button depressed to select the required chapter and then release the mouse button.
Another hint is to change the size of the separate move window in iTunes to best fit your display. CTRL-Click or right button click on the title bar of the separate window and you'll get a menu as below. Normal size is normally best as this is the resolution the screencast was recorded in.
I hope you find this screencast useful and please leave comments on the web or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
