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 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 i Heart 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 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:
- What gets people out of poverty? Education plays a huge part. A new MIT accelerator took that model and melded it with technology to create an app that is helping Syrian refugees learn to read, practice English and make connections.
- What was the most downloaded e-commerce app is the world? Hint: it’s not Amazon. Surprisingly. Make a Wish!
- App of the Week: Convert Words to Time (h/t to Recomendo).
