For all of you that didn’t realize, I really enjoy podcasting. I have hosted my own show more than once, and I have been co-host on the WordPress podcast, and the TechCanuck podcast. On Wednesday, James Cogan and I got together online and quickly put together an episode. We are going to be pushing a new one out every two weeks, with the latest news that catches our attention.
You can check out episode 11 over on dailypixel.ca where we cover the following:
a) Canadians are falling in love with online social networks. We discuss a new study released from Ipsos Reid that confirms this.
b) Micro-blogging is hot. Google announced a purchase of Jaiku – a micro-blogging tool. We talk about the micro-blogging space in general, and also what Google’s entrance means for competitors like Twitter and Pownce.
c) The Google G-Phone. We take a stab at what it is, and what it isn’t.
d) Online video advertising. Google announces they are getting serious about monetizing YouTube videos with the launch of a new ad program. Will users revolt?
e) The music business. With DRM becoming an obvious failure, and Radiohead’s revolutionary announcement about how they intend on selling their new album, is this the beginning of a new era for the music industry? Are traditional music labels done for?
James Cogan is the owner of the new media network dailypixel, which is Canadian focused, and includes both great blogs, and great services.
