TechRepublic members Jaqui and gadgetgirl have birthdays coming up, and even I had one this past week. If you just celebrated a birthday, please let us know so that we can give you a shout out next year. Also, if your birthday is quickly approaching, we want to know that too!
We also want to give everyone a heads up that the new TR Out Loud weekly video is in the works. I plan to shoot a pilot next week and hopefully launch the week after that. Stay tuned!TR Member contributions = swag We are collecting TR member submissions — photos, original video clips, and audio files — so that we can assemble them in a monthly community video. Our e-mail address is trol at techrepublic.com. If we don't receive enough submissions, that means there won't be a video for that particular month. However, for those of you who do contribute, we'll send you some free TR swag!
