Help for the technically-challenged

The Genealogy Insider blog (part of Family Tree Magazine) had a great tip for the technically-challenged among us. Since I still consider myself in this category, I thought I'd check out the CommonCraft Show.

This is the place to go to learn some Web technology couched in plain English. The low-tech short videos explain the new stuff we face every day, from blogs to wikis, Twitter, social networking, social bookmarking, podcasting, photo sharing and more.

CommonCraft has its own YouTube channel with all the videos.

And, in this election season, there's even a video on "Electing a US President in Plain English." Tracing the Tribe readers from around the world may enjoy trying to understand the system.

Thanks, Genealogy Insider, for this great pointer.
