The Tech Swan Song – Saying Goodbye To CHOM FM’s Terry DiMonte

Posted by

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:

  • CHOM Morning DJ, Terry DiMonte, will be leaving the station after decades of rocking the airwaves at the end of this month. This was our last segment together. I am wishing Terry all of the best, looking forward to our friendship off of the air, and even more curious where his voice will wind up next.
  • There has been a lot of excitement in the blockchain, cryptocurrency, and NFT space to understand/unpack this past week. Elon Musk’s Tesla will no longer accept Bitcoin and eBay is about to start selling NFTs.
  • Twitter (like Clubhouse) is also trying to build out what is being called, the Creator Economy (or Passion Economy). How? By compensating creators. Twitter has introduced a “Tip Jar.” Like a tweet? Love it enough to retweet? Why not support the creator of that tweet with some actual cash? 
  • App of the Week: ISS Spotter. We were fortunate enough to watch the International Space Station zip over our house on Saturday night. Here’s a way to know if you can catch it too.
