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 – about 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 of me blathering on about what’s happening in the 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:
- Speak Aid 2020. Think of it as the Live Aid from speakers (like me) to the world. Dan Pontefract (former TELUS exec, Victoria, B.C. resident and world renowned author/speaker) pulled this all together. It starts today! It’s to raise money for COVID 19 via the Red Cross and Red Crescent societies. It’s online, and it’s filled with some amazing speakers like: Michael Bungay Stanier, Whitney Johnson, Roger Martin, Stephen Shapiro and yours truly. Just log on, watch some of the best speakers for free and give generously.
- Did you watch the One World – Together At Home concert? What did you think? Was it as compelling as when artists go live on Instagram and connect with their fans? Too over-produced?
- Only on the Internet. An animal sanctuary in Silicon Valley called, Sweet Farm, is letting people pay to get llamas, goats, and other farm animals to tune into their video conference calls for under $100. You’ve heard of GoToMeeting? Welcome to Goat 2 Meeting.
- App of the Week: There. Know every timezone. All of the time.
