Hello ZimmComm Fans:
Got Glass? Chuck does. If you’re attending the AFBF convention this week you will see him sporting his newest agriblogging tool which he affectionately calls “ZimmGlass.” This will be his first on-location opportunity to practice including it into his work flow. This will be fun.
Speaking of Glass, our new ZimmPoll asks the question, “Would you wear Google Glass?” Let us know what you think. We want to give a shout out to New Holland for once again being a sponsor of our weekly ZimmPoll!
Speaking of cool work tools, many of you probably have a smart phone or perhaps were lucky enough to get one for Christmas. If so, how about adding the AgWired App. It’s free and easy and lets you go right to some of the best news and information about the world of agribusiness on the internet. We’ve got it for iOS and Android and are working on a new version which will be out soon. Get it now and then all you’ll have to do later is update it. Here’s where you can go to get it. Got it? Thank you very much to our most recent sponsor of the AgWired App, iCropTrak!
Now for an AgNewsWire update. Since we announced that we would be aggregating all our media content on AgNewsWire.com last April the response has been tremendous. The online Ag News Content Service has received great reviews from farm broadcasters and publication editors who have found images and audio they can use in their reporting efforts. Our event sponsors have found a new benefit to their sponsorships and we want to give a warm welcome to BASF and Dupont Pioneer for becoming the first ever AgNewsWire sponsors starting this month! If you’d like to know more about AgNewsWire please contact Chuck or Dave or more information.
Here are some interviews and audio from this week you might have missed:
Senator John Thune on Farm Bill
Senator Patrick Leahy floor speech on Farm Bill
RINS Report Media Call
Gordon Hunter, author, How Are You Mother Earth
