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:
- Montreal is opening up free wi-fi access points across the city. I’m proud that our city is doing this. The city has set-up nine free wifi access points to help those less privileged. Let’s face it, more and more of our world is digital. How can we get these people to sign up for vaccines, etc.? These access points are located in community centers and other municipal buildings. Let’s get more of these going in every other city in the world!
- Apple made many announcements at their event last week. The big one? AirTag. Creepy? A little. Much needed? I think so. It’s a Tile-like tracker (looks like a large coin) that will allow you to track your wallet… and your kids? While this may not be revolutionary… it’s a technology that people have wanted for a long time (including me).
- What is the path back to “normal”? Are we able to see beyond our own situation? How will we travel again? Will it be easy? Extremely complex?
- App of the Week: Meme Generator – This is great… take a popular meme and make it your own!
