PodCamp Pittsburgh 6 Recap

After presenting at PodCamp Pittsburgh 6 this September at Point Park University I had hoped to post the YouTube video of my presentation here titled Presenting Statistics in Social Media.  Unfortunately due to technical glitches only 18 of the 40 presentations were saved and can be viewed here.  I can however embed the slides from that presentation plus the results of a survey that I gave to attendees and was completed by 12 of them to evaluate the presentation. 

Also my article on Pennsylvania's Uninsured has been published in the latest issue of the Thomas Merton Center's Newspaper The New People.
