TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
While this is an NPR Site dedicated to Podcasting, it's quite relevant to
the field of Screencasting. Microphones and Recorders are probably the one
tool you shouldn't skimp on if at all possible. While not the best tool out
there, I use a Zoom H2 for almost everything. I also have a few high-end
mics and a pair of AKG K-250's (Headphones). http://transom.org/?category_name=tools
I actually just did a presentation for the Intermountain STC Chapter about
Screencasting. You can find the audio and links to the slides, etc. at Tom
Jonson's Site (It cover's some of this information).
