I had university radio prac today and wow was it a whirlwind! My entire body was tense with tech-anxiety.

Bloggers, I may have fooled you into believing that I'm all tech-savvy just because I use Twitter and have a blog, but no.
Anything slightly technical; pushing buttons to switch from phone to computer, quickly hanging up the phone, adjusting the recorder on screen - sends me to nervous land. Technology can simply be so unreliable... things have changed since Edward R. Murrow's time.
People on the other hand, I can handle. I enjoy cold calling unknown contacts in search of a good quote.
I have prac for the rest of the week, and going by today I think I'm really going to enjoy it. It felt really rewarding to just start with a story concept in the morning, and have a complete news radio package by lunchtime.
Will keep you posted... what have you all been up to?
What has got you all tense at the moment?
