A newscast devoted to CAD? I got the press release from the ever-enterprising Rachael Dalton-Taggart about CCNtv, a bi-weekly news show making its debut online.
I was expecting something stuffy, may be even boring, possibly amateurish. I was pleasantly surprised on all counts. What I saw was lively, entertaining and professional, and at times -- even humorous.
The first show covered several topics, including PTC earnings, Autodesk's stock options, the SolidWorks channel, etc. None will be news to you if you have been reading your TenLinks Daily or CADCAMNET newsletters (in fact, much of the material is recycled from already published articles), but the commentary and presentation is definitely fresh, entertaining and worthwhile.
Rachael's biggest challenge? Getting her editors to be available for filming. Well, I don't blame them. Hey, we don't all look like Amy Adams. "Amy is 'special talent' hired for the show," says Rachael.
It costs nothing to view the video (click here) but Rachael's company, Ashbridge Media, hopes to make money from advertising. Current book rates are $2500 for slots in two shows, but Rachael is offering a introductory discounted price of $1750.
