CTRL ALT Delete – Weekly Technology And Digital Media Review – CHOM FM #22

Posted by

Every morning at 7:10 am, I am a guest contributor on CHOM 97.7 FM radio broadcasting out of Montreal (home base). It’s not a long segment – about 5 to 10 minutes every week – about everything that is happening in the world of technology and digital media. The good folks at CHOM 97.7 FM are posting these segments weekly to SoundCloud, if you’re interested in hearing more of me blathering away. I’m really excited about this opportunity, because this is the radio station that I grew up on listening to, and it really is a fun treat to be invited to the Mornings Rock with Terry and Heather B. morning show. The segment is called, CTRL ALT Delete with Mitch Joel.

This week we discussed:

Listen here…


  1. What do you make of Julian Assange’s assertion that “people are products sold to advertisers” Are you outraged over snooping by governments and brands? Should it come as a surprise given the trail that most of us leave online. I happen to think this is not what we thought we were signing up for and not what we expected. As marketers and governments continue to intrude the surprise of this will fade and people will come to tolerate these actions and less privacy will become the new normal. Are you prepared to let organizations use the data trail you leave behind in a manner that you used to believe it would never be used? Do you see this as for better or worse

  2. Most people don’t REALLY care about personal information. They not in uproar about it. Like you said there is a list of extremely personal information that we care about nut few people even want to know who that data is connected with. For most companies you are a number. That’s all. Were in a safer world all together with this technology. Go Kit-Kat!
