This book is OUTSTANDING! I feel like I am a pretty techie person, but I learned tons of pearls that will improve my academic life. The best thing is that this book is HILARIOUS! I read it cover-to-cover without skipping anything. I hope everyone who lectures at national conferences reads the "Presentations: How to not suck" section. Enjoy!

Chapters include image acquisition and manipulation, stoock photography on a shoestring budget, ninja techniques with Photoshop and Illustrator, combining multiple exposures, making pseudo line art, making line drawings that aren't embarrassing, eBook publication, podcasting and enhanced podcasting, vodcasting and enhanced vodcasting, presentation Fu--how not to suck, screen casting, audie

This is truly a cool little ebook! If you have fallen behind the rapidly evolving technology out there this book is your crash course.
