I have mentioned before how we are utilizing Amazon Web Services to build out the GigaVox Media platform. I was pleasantly surprised this morning to see that Werner Vogels, Amazon CTO, has been paying attention to our humble little application. Reports from the Future of Web Apps conference in London are that he used our application as an example of the power of Amazon Web Services. [Via Fred Destin & Nodalities] Good way to start the day…
You can check out some fun videos from Steve Garfield and Tony Kahn focusing on Tony’s WGBH/Podcast Morning Stories. [Link to Videos] Tony has been podcasting since the beginning and has some great insight on the power of personal story telling via podcasting. Here is a great presentation he did at our Boston University Podcast Academy. While I am at it, here is link to all the videos, including Steve’s presentation from the same event.
The interviews I did on podcasting for a series on Iowa Public Televison (IPTV) have finally been run. They have also posted the interviews to the web. If you are interested you can find them here.
I am often asked to recount the story behind the original 50th Anniversary Disneyland Podcast. Those who have heard the story know it sounds like a game of telephone. “A guy (Mike Spataro) called a guy ( Greg Cangialosi) who called a guy (K. Todd Storch) who called a guy (Me).” Here is an interview that my friend Greg Cangialosi (guy #2) conducted with Mike Spataro (guy #1) for his new podcast, ROI Radio. For the record, Mike is the unsung hero of the Disneyland Podcast, he brought the opportunity to us.
BTW, Greg did a great presentation at our most recent Podcast Academy. His presentation, which he mentions in the interview, will be available for free on the Podcast Academy channel in the near future. [Link]
