David Bowie And The Social Media News Cycle

Posted by

Every Monday 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:

  • We all woke up shocked and saddened by the death of David Bowie. He was not just an artist and musician, but a true pioneer of digital media, technology and helping people to better connect.
  • How has the social media news cycle affected how we hear about the news, share our stories and more?
  • My meeting with David Bowie during his Tin Machine days.
  • App of the week: DO Camera (from the people behind IFTTT).
