Alive After Five - March 6

I had shared the announcement of this event earlier this week on Franklin Matters. They have re-issued it and truly kicked it up a notch or two!. I was planning on stopping by anyway and will be definitely going now. Will I see you there?

Feb 19th is a significant day.

Jerry landed on Iwo Jima in 1945.

Jerry left this world in 2012.

I made some pork pies this weekend for dinner tonight. My mother's recipe of course...

  • If you see a veteran today, thank them for their service...
  • If the veteran you see happens to be from WWII, listen to one of their stories (if they'll talk). There are so few of them around now.

Slidecast to be discontinued

A sad event.... oh well...

Slidecast to be discontinued
Dear Steve,
We launched Slidecast in 2007 to allow users to pair audio with their slides. While we have seen some great Slidecasts created, usage hasn't been as widespread as we had hoped, and we have decided to discontinue this feature on SlideShare.
Slidecast will be retired in two phases:
  • The ability to create Slidecasts will cease on Feb. 28, 2014
  • Existing Slidecasts will be converted to static presentations on SlideShare on April 30, 2014
To save Slidecast files in their original form, creators can download their Slidecasts from their 'My Uploads' section by April 30, 2014. After April 30, we'll convert existing Slidecasts (on the SlideShare site and embeds on other sites) into static presentations, so that there is not complete loss of content. For more information, please read FAQs.
We are sad that Slidecast is going away, but we want to focus on improving and adding SlideShare features that will resonate with more users. Thank you for your support.

From SlideShare, a LinkedIn company. 
We send these emails to help you get the most out of SlideShare.

For the Slidecasts that I have created I will be saving the files. Hopefully something will come along to provide this service.
