Every Monday morning at 7:10 am, I am on air at CHOM 97.7 FM radio out of Montreal (home base). It’s not a long segment – about 10 minutes every week – to decode the future. We discuss everything that is happening in the world of technology, digital media and culture. The good folks at CHOM 97.7 FM are posting these segments weekly on i Heart Radio, if you’re interested in hearing more about what’s happening in the transformation of our digital world. I’m really excited about these weekly hits, because this is the radio station that I grew up listening to, and it really is a fun treat to be invited to the Mornings Rock with Terry DiMonte morning show. The segment is called, CTRL ALT Delete with Mitch Joel.
This week we discussed:
- If we need to get the Covid 19 vaccine to everyone, maybe we should let Amazon do it? As absurd as that may sound, Amazon has offered to help the Biden administration with their vaccine efforts. Amazon also offered up any technologies, communications, and personnel to the White House to help move along tracking and vaccinations. Makes sense to me… how about you? I’d like mine delivered by Prime and here in an hour, if you don’t mind.
- Have you heard of Clubhouse? It seems to be the next, new, shiny and bright object in social media. For now, you need an invite and it’s only available in Apple’s App Store. Clubhouse is an audio-based social media app. The company describes itself as “a new type of social product based on voice that allows people everywhere to talk, tell stories, develop ideas, deepen friendships, and meet interesting new people around the world.” Basically, you can jump in and out of different chats/conversations on different subjects, in something akin to a live, free-flowing podcast. You can simply listen in or choose to throw in your thoughts. Remember the party lines back in the day? This is the hot, new thing.
- App of the Week: Marco Polo – stay in touch with the people who matter most to you.
You can also listen in via I Heart Radio.
