|Beginning||This episode is an introduction to Jim and Chris of Geeks on Tour and all about using the GeeksOnTour.com website to learn about using technology.
Coming to you from Buckeye Arizona.
If you notice that Jim sounds good and Chris sounds far away, that’s because she forgot to plug in her microphone but, you can still hear her thru Jim’s.
Jim and Chris met back in 1993 when Chris owned a Computer Training center and Jim built the computers that she bought for the classrooms. One thing led to another and Chris hired Jim as the network administrator for her business with 100 computers. Later they married and she sold the business. They bought an RV and sold their house in 2003 and have been on the road ever since. They started presenting seminars as Geeks on Tour in 2006 and the website has been growing ever since.

Finding a Tutorial Video
This has always been our primary focus. We’ve been making short, prepared, tutorial videos for the topics we teach since 2005. Each video is between 2 and 8 minutes long. Some of them stand alone, some of them are in a series. They are all collected on our website, and most are for Members Only.

A recommendation: Don’t wait until you need to learn something to watch our videos. Watch them when you want some inspiration, when there’s nothing on TV. Treat them more like entertainment than work. Got 20 minutes with nothing to do? Watch a few videos, pick a topic you may have no clue about and watch a few. Now, you’ll be more aware of what is available in our videos and, when you do start to work on something, you can re-watch the appropriate videos.
