Soldering 101... with a DJI Drone

April 10 2014

In this episode of "Know How", Patrick Delahanty fills in for Bryan, who is currently high in the Himalayas, looking for a secret cache of Dogecoins. While he's gone, we learn some basic Soldering with Mark "Smitty" Smith, take a sneak peek at the new HD Drone from DJI, then show you how to properly publish your new Podcast.

Waka Waka Water

Get your water basket on
* 768 Million people around the world don't have access to SAFE water
* In many countries, water is gathered by women in children in large clay pots... often drawn from water sources of suspect quality.
* With many small communities living MILES from water, much of the day is spent just getting enough water to live... This ENSURES that they'll stay in poverty.
* Ever day, 1,400 children under the age of 5 die because of water-borne illness
* Designer Auturo Vitorri wants to solve that problem with 30ft high water towers that look too beautiful to be functional
* The towers, called "WarkaWater" pull atmospheric moisture out of the air and collect in in basins at the bottom of each tower.
* They are made of two sections - a rigid structure, and an internal bladder, akin to a plastic bag
* Each tower costs $550 and can be built in under a week with a 4-person team and locally available materials
* They estimate that in a place like Ethiopia, each of these baskets could collect 25 gallons of clean water a day.

Publish Your Podcast!

Refer to episode #23, "Podcast 101", for how to get started with an audio podcast.

Compress your video
* Need iOS-compatible since Android can play that too.
** MP4 or M4V is best format. H.264 compression.
* If you’re on a Mac, Compressor is $49.99 - easy to use!
* Could also save from iMovie, but may not get the best compression.
* On Windows, Adobe Media Encoder or VideoLAN client
* Cross-platform, FFmpeg is free, but has a learning curve.

Hosting your video
* Episode 23 mentioned archive.org, but it’s slow.
* Libsyn (libsyn.com) - free bandwidth, but pay for storage.
** $5/mo for 50Mb, $15 for 250, $20 for 400, $75 for 1.5G
** Check the terms of service for wording on monetizing your podcast
* Blubrry (blubrry.com) - free bandwidth, pay for storage
** $12/mo for 100Mb, $20 for 250, $80 for 1G
** Integrates with WordPress easier with PowerPress plug-in
* Host your own!
** Look for hosting provider with “unlimited” disk and bandwidth.
** Squarespace has a plan for this, but 120mb limit per file.
** DreamHost, BlueHost, HostGator, 1and1
** WordPress with plug-ins

RSS feed generation options
* Feedburner...but Google owns it and is ignoring it. Is there a future?
* Libsyn and Blubrry will do it for you.
* Podcast Generator http://podcastgen.sourceforge.net/
* WordPress with plug-ins (PowerPress is one of the most popular)
* Line-by-line explanation of TWiT's RSS XML in the TWiT Wiki.
