We continue our drive for a tighter format – we kept it to about 30 minutes! Thanks to Matt and Josh for pre-production planning. On today’s show, we take at look at three “Current Affairs” and then address them in three ways:

* Why is this important
* What should you do about it (or what am I going to do about it)
* How can you explain this to someone else?

Your feedback is needed!
I am evaluating Plaxo (with the help of others) to determine if this is safe to use, or if it provides a security risk. I need your help!
If you use Plaxo and love it, I want to hear from you – and why.
If you don’t use Plaxo, I’d like to know why?
And if you’re not sure, let me know what questions or concerns you have, so I can address them in the next week.

The following track from the podsafe music collection of podshow were used during episode #7.
