10 Things I Learned From @Blogworld Critique a Podcast Panel

Last week I held a great panel of content creators who critiqued 4 shows during BlogWorld & New Media Expo.

I was able to pull the data off the drives. It just took a while to do. I still have to run the Seagate software, but the bigger question is if the drives are still under warranty. Seagate drives...
