Several people have recently purchased iPad apps and I always get asked the same question, “What apps do I need?” There is no way to comprehensibly answer that question and have it apply universally. Every user has different needs and wants, but there are a few apps that are across the board useful to most … Continue reading
Yes, it’s Friday, but I didn’t want to change the name. We do a lot of collaboration on our team working on documents and projects together. I have highlighted some of the tools we use for that: Dropbox, SugarSync, Evernote, Google Wave, and of course, good “old fashioned” email. The one we use for our … Continue reading
When it comes to technology, the cutting edge is the bleeding edge. You can bleed yourself dry trying to keep up with the latest and greatest of everything. I obviously like technology and strive to stay up on what is happening in the tech world. However, I don’t always have the latest available. One, I … Continue reading
I’ve been writing about technology nearly every Thursday for a few months now choosing topics based on what we use here at CapCity. We are trying out some new tools and things change every day in the world of tech. However, I wanted to take a post to open up to any questions you may … Continue reading

What makes it different than Dropbox is that its free service allows for 5gb of storage where Dropbox … Continue reading
I was hesitant at first to get an iPad when they first came out. It wasn’t clear that it was necessary in my context having an iPhone and a Macbook Pro. So I waited. Over several months I read articles on the iPad and talked with others about it and paid attention to how they … Continue reading
I guess innovation comes in many forms… Redneck Fire Alarm We will resume with our normal Tech Thursday posts next week.
I am going to highlight the actual hardware equipment I use over the next couple of Tech Thursday posts. Today we will start with my camera, a Canon T1i. (click here for specs and details from Canon) This is not the newest or best camera Canon offers, but I found it to be a good … Continue reading
Due to my schedule this week, I did not get a Tech Thursday post prepared. We will resume with that series next week.
We use a team concept to preparing messages here at CapCity. Technology makes this easier to collaborate for sure. [Like all things, the process below is the ideal and when everything is flowing well. This happens much of the time, but there are exceptions.] Before we get into the technology used, let me say a … Continue reading
Today I took part in a simulcast leadership conference called the “Elephant Room.” The contents of the day would be another post that I may do later. Since this is Thursday, I wanted to focus on the tech side of the day. I sat in a room with a couple hundred leaders and pastors from … Continue reading
One of the things that is vital to every organization that desires to grow and move forward is feedback. Without feedback it is difficult, at best, to get a good understanding of effectiveness. As a church, we want every guest to have a significant and memorable experience from the moment they enter the property. The … Continue reading
Part 3 of the Mac vs, PC series. While I am a Mac user and all computing products I own are Apple, at the church we are fully a dual platform environment. As stated, we are about 50/50 Mac OS to Windows here at CapCity. That is changing, but we will not remove all Windows … Continue reading
