this is the first of my free advocate series lectures.

the mifi device

this course has been designed to give you a broader awareness about a mifi device, how it works, how to setup the majority of devices and how to get the most out it even when things go wrong.

i believe that being an advocate requires more than just having the tools for the job from the right brand i believe you need to know what to do when a piece of equipment or piece of software goes wrong and being prepared to adapt.

you will find an extensive overview of the mifi broken down into lots of talking head videos, screencasts and haiku deck presentations. you should be able to quickly absorb this information quickly and feel more confident about your mifi abilities and knowledge by the end of this course.

i do hope you will take this and my other free courses and think about investing in the paid ones later on. if your are intending to become a full time blogger, social media intern or just eyes and ears 'ontheground' at an event then this course is a useful primer into the world of the technology behind the scenes you need to becoming a mobile content creating machine.

enjoy the course, please leave feedback and suggest any lecture you might need if you find yourself wanting more information.

I love playing with technology and making it easier for others to understand. 

I've Worked with Digital Agencies over the years as a Video Brand Advocate and Blogger with 1000heads (Nokia) and Crayon (watchtv/verisign) learning the art of Transmedia Storytelling.

My intention is to push to be living off-grid (with on-grid internet!) teaching my daughter about all things sustainable in the process and teaching her and others about data.

Sold the domain name 'medm' to Evan Williams of Twitter fame during the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games for a five figure sum and helped out a Tornado hit town with the same name (Phil Campbell, Alabama)

My courses are priced for everyone to afford. Purchasing my courses allows me to live out my dream of working digitally from revenue i make from my creative works.
