Betamouse – "Disney Meetup Tech."

Posted on


One of the great things about being a member of the Disney community is being able to take advantage of meet ups with other fans.  Often, these take place at various locations throughout the parks, but they can happen anywhere, really.  How do you spread the word about a meet up, though?  Not everyone can make it to every meet up, so is it possible to reach those who can’t attend?  What can we use to do that?  This week’s Betamouse episode covers all of those topics as the panel discusses how technology has affected meet ups within the Disney fan community.

Betamouse – “Disney with Laptops”

Posted on


I found this podcast a little over a week ago, and I figured it needs to have a place on DisTECH.  Betamouse is truly a podcast for Disney geeks who are interested in technology.  What I’m going to do is post a quick update with every new episode and let you know what that episode is about.  You’ll have to listen to the show to get all the details, though.  This isn’t my version of CliffsNotes!

This is Betamouse’s sixth episode.  The panel (made up of Henry Work, Jeff Chaney, Nate Parrish, Scott Barrett, and Katie Siloac) is discussing traveling to Disney with laptops.  They have tips for traveling with your laptop (including discussion on laptop bags and hotel security), and find out if any members of the panel have carried a laptop into the parks.  Personally, I’ve never even entertained that thought!
