Every morning at 7:10 am, I am a guest contributor on CHOM 97.7 FM radio broadcasting out of Montreal (home base). It's not a long segment - about 5 to 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 to SoundCloud, if you're interested in hearing more of me blathering away. I'm really excited about this opportunity, because this is the radio station that I grew up on listening to, and it really is a fun treat to be invited to the Mornings Rock with Terry and Heather B. morning show. The segment is called, CTRL ALT Delete with Mitch Joel.
This week we discussed:
- Virtual money and Mt. Gox files for bankruptcy.
- BitCoin ATM.
- It's still early stages for digital currency.
- Digital currency is not a failure... being bad at business is.
- WhatsApp and what's happening now? Soon to get voice!
- BlackBerry and WhatsApp - good news?
- Ellen and the Oscar's selfie and product placement.
- App of the week: 1Password.
