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:
- What might concerts and conferences might look like in the near-to-long term? Fan pods, drive-in concerts, social distancing or buying tickets/watching online? Does this all make for a great concert experience? Will we ever get back to moshpits and standing shoulder-to-shoulder with other fans? (Source: Mashable – The first quarantine concert foretells music’s dystopian future and The Atlantic – Air Travel Is Going to Be Very Bad, for a Very Long Time).
- Facebook released their new redesign not too long ago. Are you caught up? Have you switched over? Did you know that they now have a great Dark Mode? If you haven’t, let’s switch over and move to the dark side. (Source: Mashable – Facebook redesign goes live for everyone, dark mode included).
- App of the Week: Yousician. Learn guitar, bass, drums, ukulele and more.
