1303 Tech Tuesday (The Kojo Nnamdi Show)

E-mail Print PDF

03/26/2013 Technology In The Car  Guest Host: Paul Brown

Tech Tuesday examines how technology in cars is changing the way we drive.  Technology built into the dashboard of the car is changing the way we drive. It helps us navigate, change lanes and park. It sends email and makes phone calls for us. It can even read the newspaper to us while we're stuck in traffic. But is it making us safer, or more distracted? Tech Tuesday explores the new "connected car" and the features drivers want most.

03/19/2013 From :) To GIFs: Expressing Ourselves With Images Online  

In the early days, the Internet and email were text-driven. But a decade after email began, the sideways smiley-face emoticon showed up, along with other symbols of emotion constructed largely from punctuation marks. Love 'em or hate 'em, they're still around and have been joined by emoji, an extensive keyboard of images available on Apple products, and GIFs, a short-loop animation. Tech Tuesday explores the history, function and future of these images as a means of communication and their place in the tech lexicon.

GIF, or Graphics Interchange Format, is a file format used to create short animated clips. They're constructed from videos or photos, often include text and continuously loop while playing. This is an example of a GIF from the Kojo Namdi Show studio that's customized with text.

You can make a GIF by using Photoshop, a phone or tablet app or website. Several guides walk you through options, such as "How To Make a GIF in Five Easy Steps" and "5 Free Animated GIF Creators You Can Use Online."

We made this one by exporting still photos from a video editing tool like Adobe Premiere and uploading the files to free web-based GIF maker Picasion.


Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer sparked an uproar last week when she said employees at her company would no longer be able to work from home. In a country where a growing number of workers telecommute, some said the move was unfair and unwise, while others applauded her effort to build an in-person culture of innovation. Tech Tuesday explores the debate over telework and the tools to work well at home, from hardware to software and security to accountability.
