On this week's edition of “Point & Click Radio,” the long-running KZYX computer show, we’ll talk about digital disaster preparedness.
This week’s wildfires have exposed weaknesses in the communications grid, from overwhelmed phone circuits to damaged or destroyed cell towers.
Digital tools, including email and social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, have proven their value for sending and receiving information. But they’ve also been prone to inaccuracies.
Jim Heid will talk about this as well the importance of having a “digital disaster plan”, including backing up your computer and having a digital “go bag” that you can grab if the worst happens.
For all the details, tune in to KZYX Point & Click Radio Wednesday 11 October at 7 pm. You can also listen online at KZYX.org.
