Media Hacks Audio Podcast #30 Is Now Live

Posted by

Episode #205 of Six Pixels of Separation – The Twist Image Podcast is now live and ready for you to listen to. This is also episode #30 of Media Hacks.

Who would have thought that we would have made it this far? In this episode, C.C. Chapman, Julien Smith and myself have a pretty hot and heated conversation that covers everything from our online identities and the types of content we publish to what it takes to create content on the iPad. We also look at how the publishing and advertising game changes when everyone is a publisher and what the world looks like as the Internet pulls our attention away from other media channels and one another. There is a lot to digest and plenty of fodder for the Blogs. Please keep in mind that this episode is not safe for work. Enjoy the conversation…

  1. Midway through and I’m loving the conversation guys!
    On the blog closure idea brought up by Julien, Feedburner’s widget helped me.
    I used it in my final post at to redirect my readers to my current blog.
    Not only does it inform them that I’ve moved on, but it also feeds my latest blog post subjects and snippets, so it entices folks to click through.
    Enjoying the show lads! Keep it up.

  2. Here’s my take on the dying blog thing. If you are an “expert” about something, I want to see up-to-date content on the subject. Expertise = timely. If you have nothing new to say, then I seriously question you as an expert. Yes, the previous content is still something that folks will use, but the fact that the blog is a ghost town seriously degrades the amount of trust/authority that blog has in my mind.
    Plus, I strongly believe that blogging is a part of the new business model. If you don’t get that and aren’t posting consistently (not necessarily frequently), then I question your expertise in the first place.
    Now, legacy blogs are a different thing. If you’re off producing content somewhere else, that’s fine. Just as long as you’ve left the appropriate digital breadcrumbs.
    6 Pixels/Media Hacks continues to be in my top 3 list of podcasts. Thanks for continuing to crank them out!

  3. i liked this one better than some of the previous episodes. it also wasn’t overly fan-boyish regarding the ipad. we are finally getting a good picture of what it is – and what the iphone is – merely a consumer’s device.
    as for the blogging thing – i actually identified lately that sometimes when we have big events to write about they can create roadblocks. you feel like your next post has to be on that topic but you are having a hard time finding words for writing about it.
    it would be good to link to the book that’s mentioned near the end because now i’ll have to go back into the audio to fish out the title.
    nice job fellas

  4. If we were able to say that COBOL is not a current programming language, does the COBOL expert have to stay current with his or her COBOL skills?
    I could argue it both ways. On one hand, if you’re not actively programming, you could lose your skill over time. On the other hand, it’s COBOL.
