On the Pod with Toby Bloomberg

On the Pod with Howard Rheingold

How can one introduce a person like our 25th guest to appear On the Pod???

Howard Rheingold does not really need any introduction, and if he does, you should run out right now to your nearest bookstore (or go to Amazon on your browser of choice) and buy his last book “Smart Mobs”…nah…scratch that…go and buy all of his books. Why??? Because Howard has been involved in some of the most important projects involving modems and PC’s since the early 80’s, including; VR, social software and networks, The Well, HotWired, Electric Minds, Brainstorms and the power of mobile technology in modern communities around the world. We chat to Howard about all of those subjects and more…

Its not often that you get to talk to someone who has played such a big part in your life, but this one of those moments for me…we hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

On the Pod with Ewan Spence

We are slowly catching up on our backlog of shows, and in this release of “On the Pod” (recorded in early February) we talk to Ewan Spence all the way from Scotland.

Ewan runs the “All About” group of websites (including AllAboutSymbian.com) and is also a published author…a little bit of disclosure here as well…since recording this show he has also started doing a show for The Podcast Network called The Mobiles Show.

Ewan is an absolute blast to interview and we talk about Kylie Minogue, Bouncer from Neighbours, all sorts of things about Symbian, Microsoft Mobiles Platform and other phone OS’s vs Symbian, music and mobile phones and other devices (Nokia vs Apple and the iPod??), software certification, OS market pentration, what phone does Ewan use (or…whats in his podzilla), N-Gage and Series 60, Splinter Cell and gaming on mobiles, Mobile phone names, his kilt and Crow, the “All About” websites, listening to podcasts on his Sony Mini-disk and his upcoming (at the time) trip to 3GSM.


On the Pod with Hobart Swan

In our 23rd interview for “On the Pod” we talk to Hobart Swan, Manger of External Affairs at Mindjet who are the publishers of the best mind mapping software available (well..according to Cam and I it is)…MindManager.

We talk with him about the start of MindJet and how he got involved with them, why Michael Jetter wrote a mind mapping application when he discovered he had leukemia, why do people use mindmapping software and what are the benefits with using mindmaps, how does he use mind maps in his day-to-day life, changing peoples perception of mind mapping software, using RSS in MindManager, Tabpet PC’s and paper notebooks, his thoughts on blogging in the corporate sphere and a host of other interesting stuff.
