Something I should have mentioned a while back... I'm doing a podcast. I know! It's like it's 2006 or something! It's called Off the Wall Post.* It's about digital media; that stuff that's getting everywhere and adding layers of interconnectedness to our lives, whether we know it or not. Twitter, Facebook, Google, mobiles, online video, maps, photos; all networked and all trackable.
I have a particular interest as my job is in this area, but the idea behind the podcast is that we come at all this innovation and technology from a normal person's point of view, and discuss when and how it affects most people, not just tech journos or so-called social media experts.
I'm doing it with Dan Biddle, a super-knowledgable producer and ex-chef with an interesting angle on everything (you didn't think TV had anything to do with quantum physics? THINK AGAIN.) and Barry Pilling, an extremely talented director, animator and writer whose stuff you should see.
We're kind of making it up as we go along, but having a lot of fun doing it. Hopefully it's entertaining, and makes sense of things that tend to get a bit shrouded in hype and jargon.
But which one of you does the best pig impersonation?, I hear you cry. What's the correct response to someone eating chicken on the tube? And how do Flanders and Swann feature?
You should listen to find out!
* Yeah, I managed to get a Michael Jackson reference in there ;)
