Tech Guy Leo Laporte Hosts Radio Interview About Microsoft Visio

Leo Laporte, highly respected tech industry journalist and host of the syndicated radio program "The Tech Guy", interviewed Brett Newman, President and CEO of Visimation Inc. on the subject of Microsoft Visio.  The pre-recorded interview took place in The Cottage, Leo's studio headquarters in Petaluma, CA for broadcast during Leo's upcoming trip to China.

"I asked Brett Newman to come in to talk about a program that many of you (in the audience) have, but most of you have never used, and you may not even know what it does," Leo comments in his introduction.

The discussion briefly covers historical facts about Visio as well as the many common and uncommon uses for this powerful yet easy to use drawing program.  Business diagrams, network designs, security, laboratories, crime scenes, factories, and much more.  Leo visits and asks about the many Visio stencils available for free and for purchase.  He especially liked the China maps because he was about to embark on a trip to China.
