A Thermal Imaging Blog! — 11 Comments

  1. A bit late in the response, but we definitely want to thank you for the recognition on our blog. We???re glad it has been, so far, a useful source of information for the thermal imaging community, and hope that it will continue to be a vital resource for thermographers of all industries! Kudos to all the other companies partaking in social media, as well. Thanks again!

    P.S. We prefer the term ???Flukies??? 🙂

  2. Apologies to Gary Orlove and the merry men at ITC. Of course you have had a blog on Blogspot for nearly two years.

    We completely overlooked the link to it on the home page of the InfraredTraining Center the other day. But today, after seeing Mr Orlove’s comment we noted that there was indeed a prominent link to it and its rss newsfeed. on the ITC home page.

    But I noted that it was one of the first to feature a newsfeed, too. There’s more than hope after all!

    Great work as usual, Gary!

  3. Thanks for your comment. Correction: Flir is dipping several toes into Social Media… sort of.

    We looked at several Thermal Imager/Camera pages on the Extech Instruments website (extech.com/cameras/) and could not find a link to anything like a blog or to PlanetExtech.com for that matter.

    We were looking in the area of product/customer support blogs specifically related to Thermal Imaging that our brief story covered.

    A social media site is a big step forward. Glad you took it, but why don’t you feature it in the Thermal Imager area of the Extech website?

    We, too, like Twitter and facebook links but don’t see them as substitute aid in user support & education, especially the ones involved in Infrared Thermography. That’s why we have several websites on Infrared Apps.

    BTW, The editorials and comment on our sites, and the replies, are not sponsored, nor influenced by any thermal imager company of any stripe.

    Good job on what you done so far!

  4. Appreciate your comment, Lisa, but just what is the basis for your comment???

    See the reply to the previous comment from Mr, Rebolo, if that is your point of reference. We’d love nothing more to help spread the news about useful Online tools for practicing infrared Thermographers

  5. Great to hear it! However, we don’t believe a microblog is quite the same as a blog – less customer interaction. Plus, 140 characters is not much when it comes to explaining details of a Thermal Imager or an Infrared Thermography app!

  6. it seems like Extech does have a hand in the “future” of the web, they have a social network called Planet Extech (www.planetextech.com) which also includes a blog. And I also follow them on twitter! twitter.com/planetextech

  7. Dear “editor,”

    I was disappointed to learn that your rather advertorial blog post did not reflect very substantial research in terms of social media content from competitors to Fluke.

    If your readers are interested in balanced coverage of social media content from other companies such as Extech, I invite them to visit the following resources:

    http://www.PlanetExtech.com — a web2.0 social networking site for Extech users. This site not only offers a blog, but also live video at industry events, a video library, member blogs, chat, and a forum. We’re pleased to count some of your Fluke colleagues as members of Planet Extech. Apparently, they’re interested in what’s going on at Extech?

    Also, did you know you that for real-time news and micro-blogging on Extech topics, you can follow me, http://twitter.com/arebelo and Planet Extech on Twitter? http://twitter.com/planetextech . Again, we’re pleased to have Fluke TI and Fluke instruments among our followers.

    On the FLIR side, you can find and follow several twitter handles for micro-blogging in real-time from our colleagues at FLIR.

    While I can’t offer you a Web1.0 member forum, 😉 Extech was also among the first test instrument companies to have a Facebook page. Just search Extech.

    And keep in mind, our main website, http://www.extech.com has integrated tools to post our content on a wide variety of social networking sites.

    I hope you and your readers find the links above worthwhile and substantively informative in case they want to learn more about the wider range of blog and microblog resources that’s actually available out there.
