Is Technology Going To Make Us The Worst? And More On This Week's CTRL ALT Delete Segment On CHOM 97.7 FM

Posted by

Every Monday morning at 7:10 am, I am a guest contributor on CHOM 97.7 FM radio 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 on iHeart Radio, if you’re interested in hearing more of me blathering away about what’s going on in the digital world. 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 DiMonte morning show. The segment is called, CTRL ALT Delete with Mitch Joel.

This week we discussed: 

  • This was a shorter version of our usual segment due to the vast flooding that is taking place in Montreal.
  • Is it end of times? Between politics and artificial intelligence, it can easily feel this way. What seems like something out of an episode of Black Mirror comes Completed. It’s being billed as “Yelp for professionals,” but here’s what it really does: it allows coworkers (and clients) to rate whether they like you or not. What do you think about that?
