Sukhjit has extensive traditional and new media experience and has a new vlog called Sukhjit.me , a contributer to the Android mobile application Cooking Capsules, and works with PeopleBrowsr.

Oosah - Nerd Stalker #24

(5 mins) Oosah is a simple, easy-to-use, but feature rich "Web 2.0" content hosting site. They give you one spot on the Web where you can manage all of your digital media content - photos, videos, and music/audio files. It is designed to be easy enough for novice users to use, while at the same time providing features that even the advanced user can appreciate. Oosah is a fully Web-based application, there is no Oosah application or code that you need to download or install on your Mac or PC (minus the optional screen grab application).

Lefora - Nerd Stalker #23

Nerd Stalker speaks to the "Top Dog" at Lefora, Vinnie Lauria. The Lefora Team got fed up with the lack of features available in message boards, such as vbulletin and phpbb forums. We use them everyday, from art forums, to game forums, to tech forums - they couldn't get over just how old school they were. Something needed to be done. So they created a free forum hosting service. Nerd Stalker ONLY special! Email vinnie@lefora.com that you saw him on Nerd Stalker and get what is usually a premium feature, custom domain name hosting for FREE. At first I thought forums would be the dullest of all topics (personal bias based on dealing with outdated forum applications see above), but Lefora has some really great stuff happening. FREE - No limit on the amount of posts or members in your forum. Quick & Easy - With just a click your free forum will be created - it's that simple. Forum Hosting - No downloads, no setup - you don't have to do any work.
