SPOS #52 – One Year Anniversary

Posted by

Welcome to episode #52 of Six Pixels Of Separation – The Twist Image Podcast. It is officially one year since we started this Podcast. There are some very cool comments and some better conversations. It was a crazy week of travel from getting home from Vancouver and heading off to Ottawa for the CMA – Canadian Marketing Association – National Convention And Trade Show 2007 – but it’s all good and very exciting. While I don’t mention them directly in this episode, Six Pixels Of Separation would never exist had it not been for Joseph Jaffe, C.C. Chapman and Donna Papacosta (thank you all for your support and friendship). Enjoy this conversation…

  1. First, congratulations on a year of podcasting–and of producing great podcasts. But I confess to being a little irked, because this was the second time in a row that you said you were going to address a text comment of mine on the show and then didn’t do it. If audio is the only way to actually get through, you should say so.
    It should come as no surprise that I completely agree with Heidi Miller on the subject of grammar and spelling. I’m 40 years old, and reading SMS-style spelling is much harder than reading real words.
    On top of that, “keynoting” as a verb makes me cringe. Of course I know what you mean, and the verbification of nouns is a natural linguistic process, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it. I get the same teeth-gritting response when the Ur-Guru uses “obsolete” as a transitive verb (as in “this product will obsolete the competition.”

  2. Great post Mitch. I know it wasn’t a big part of the show, but your thoughts on the Nintendo Wii was great. I’m going to try and leave a comment on your phone line about it.

  3. Thanks for the kind words all.
    Steve: I’d love some audio feedback.
    Sallie: I’ll send you an email to discuss your text comments. I’m sorry stuff like “keynoting” makes you cringe. My guess is many people cringed when they heard words changed the first time as well. Some stuck… some got us unstuck 😉
    Duane: I hope to have more insights on stuff like the Wii. Based on what I’ve seen, gaming is a large – but not the only – component of these systems. It’s getting exciting.

  4. @Mitch
    Thanks for the comment on my blog. Gaming is really just the tip of the iceberg of what these systems can do. That’s one reason why I love blogging about marketing and the cross roads that is video games. You can watch TV and movies and MSN over your 360. The ability to browse the Internet on your Wii, download photos and yes even use Google Reader is interesting.
    The future is really two folds, one is being able to access any form of digital content you want and the second is being able to communicate on a global bases with your community. We’ve barely scratched the surface of what you can do with these systems. We are only limited by our imagination.

  5. Congrats on episode 50 and the one year anniversary. It sounds like an echo but keep up the great work Mitch.
    I’ll continue to live vicariously through you – my rockstar friend. 🙂

  6. Sulemaan: as always, thanks for the kind words… and your friendship. It means a lot to me.
    Duane: I have a slide in my presentation that talks about how XBox is now looking for/developing new TV content… the rules are definitely changing. People talk about the shifts in media, but after seeing what I have in the Wii and XBox 360, I am more than convinced that there will be change… not shift in the soon-to-near future.
