Experimenting with Time-Lapse

I have this awesome app for my iPhone that allows me to easily record time-lapse videos.  Time-lapse is a method of greatly speeding up an event by taking still images a set time period apart and then playing them back at video frame rates.  For this video I set up the app to take photos at 5 second intervals and then played them back at 30 frames per second.  That's 2.5 minutes per second of video!

How-to #GardenChat






     Each week a great group of gardeners from all over the world get together to discuss gardening.  How do we do this?  Twitter!  On Monday nights at 9:00 pm Eastern you can do a Twitter search for the hashtag #GardenChat to see the conversation.  Hastags are a way for folks to organized conversations on Twitter with a common theme.
     GardenChat was originally started by Bren @BG_garden.  GardenChat also has its own Twitter account too for announcing weekly topics and guest tweeters.  You can find it @TheGardenChat.  Of course, you can follow me on Twitter too @GeekyGarden!

Getting the Cat Back in the Bag

     I recently had the unique experience of accidentally leaking some information on my company’s Facebook page and Twitter account before it should have been released. When I realized what had happened, I quickly had to scramble to remove the information before it had a chance to spread. However, with Facebook and Twitter deleting a post is not a foolproof task. Here are some steps you can take to limit the spread.
