The Electronic Side of Astrology

Technology is so important in the information age, and there are certain areas that will help an astrologer. I started with an on-line course in web design where I learned the basic HTML codes, now I maintain my own web site. One of the important things I learned is that the answers to many tech questions can be found online through search engines such as Google, or by taking a class. The tech stuff is easier than you think if you have a good teacher, and the new stuff is simple if you keep up.

Unfortunately, much of the tech information is geared to techies. I was looking for a simple definition for a podcast for weeks. I kept getting long words, codes, and tech garble. I was told how to do a podcast, but not given a simple definition. You wouldn't believe some of the answers I got; I thought I was going to have to learn Greek. By the way, a podcast is a recording (usually of a conversation such as an interview) put into a digital format that can be downloaded ("saved") to a computer or put on a mobile device, such as an ipod, to listen to at a later time.

The best way to learn about computers is human contact. They still haven't replaced us.

I was reading the flyer for the May 2008 UAC Conference in Denver and this caught my eye.

UAC Registration:

The list of speakers for the UAC Conference is incredible.

UAC 2008 will feature 157 of the top professional astrologers in the world, and will take place May 15-20, 2008 in Denver, CO, at the beautiful Adams Mark Hotel. It is an event you don’t want to miss if you are a student or professional astrologer! There will be no better place than this to make contact with your colleagues from scores of different countries. Attendance is expected to be over 1500, featuring a trade show ("The UAC Market Place") of over 50 top astrological vendors, and over 270 exceptional classes and workshops spanning a choice of 15 different tracks.

Even if you're new to astrology, the conferences are fun, especially if people leave their ego at the door. Well actually, the ego clashes can be entertaining.
