Thank you for the nice review…

Judy B:

Feedback: The Podcasting 101 tutorial was immensely helpful!  I signed up to learn about podcasting to help launch a new business. Not only did I learn the basics, but Burt Lewis customized the sessions and introduced me to the tools I needed prior to setting up a podcast. Burt is a hugely generous person who is passionate and dedicated to sharing his expertise to help others succeed and reach their true potential.  He is one of the most knowledgeable, smartest people I have ever met. More importantly, he has a wonderful, motivating teaching style that doesn’t intimidate. I’m not sure how Burt did it, but after meeting with him for three sessions, I was able to update my social media tools, start a website, and test out and add an ntroductory podcast onto the website.  Best of all, I am now truly excited about playing around with these tools. I would encourage anyone who wants to improve their podcasting and other social media computer skills to sign up for Burt’s classes. He’s the best!

Can we use your comments in our reports and studies? YES!

How I won the 1999 Town of Easton Outstanding Achievement Award

In 1996 I took a part time night job after my day job working for the Internet Connection (iCi) in Mansfield Mass., a local Internet access dial up provider. I took the job for the sole purpose of learning from the inside about the new piece of technology called the Internet and the World Wide Web. It was just starting, I new it was going to be big and I wanted to learn and know all about it… More to come, stay tuned…12654322_10208053919613609_1866953152359562717_n

My blog, still going strong after 22 years – a look back…

I started this blog in 1996, before facebook, before twitter, before instagram, before wordpress, before the word blog… as a service to the town in which I live where the idea was that citizens could connect online, post information, learn from each other, share, exchange ideas, discuss what’s going on, etc.

22 years later, it’s still going on, thank you for following Eastonmass.com

How to stay anonymous online

That’s the first step to take with your social media accounts…
