SPOS #182 – Media Hacks #22 – Holiday Hacks

Posted by

Welcome to episode #182 of Six Pixels Of Separation – The Twist Image Podcast. This is also the latest episode of Media Hacks (#22 – hard to believe we made it this far). This will be the last Media Hacks for 2009 and in this episode we discuss the language issue (again, and hopefully for the last time), the changing face of the e-book, the speed of which we’re getting new technology and how this year panned out. We’ve got Christopher S. Penn (aka The Ninja), Hugh McGuire and myself on this episode. Lots of different topics with lots of back and forth. Enjoy the conversation…

Here it is: Six Pixels Of Separation – The Twist Image Podcast – Episode #182 – Host: Mitch Joel.

  1. Is it just that I’m an old romantic….or just plain old and my eyes just can’t see small characters on my iphone sometimes….still prefer to read on paper…I like the paper book…I like having the book on my shelves…
    And what about reading in the bathtub and dosing off and slowly lowering your hands until the book touches the water….try that with a kindle…
    I love my Iphone…and I do buy some audio version of books which I find great in wasted time periods like when I am driving…but reading with my actual eyes on a device…its still a stretch for me…
    Also, I like the idle time sometimes…we are so busy in life…when I am in the lobby of a customer, waiting for my host…I enjoy sinking in the atmosphere, watching people go by…whipping out a kindle to make the most of those 5 minutes seems a little like a waste of a great brain idle time opportunity…
    Then again, maybe I am just plain old….

  2. Glad to hear your perspective and position on the cursing/censorship.
    I have a few paper books I’ve wanted to read, tons on my Amazon wish list and I’m going to take the cue and go digital. Until you mentioned it, I guess I had never really thought of all the opportunities we have to read if the books/content were on my iphone.
    Seven listeners now? Cool!
    Mitch, Hue, Christopher, and MIA – CC, Julian & Chris Broagn Hope you all have a great Christmas and Holiday.
    Ps. Magic Carpet: Great song! FYI – A couple shows back, I went and D/L’d some NewLeaf songs.

  3. Very interesting discussion about “booksâ€? V “E readers,â€? for me there is something about the “smell” of a new book, holding and turning the pages … also you can’t really gift wrap a digital book! I can see the appeal of digital, portability etc, but some of my books are like “old friendsâ€? especially the ones with comments written by friends. Although, I wouldn’t rule out the digital option in the future! Thanks for the blog and the podcast, very informative.
