Here is a podcast I recorded this morning over at Cinchcast.
Today while exchanging some tweets with @simbeckhampson I recognized that my social media and web footprint has evolved over time and in the process different tools have been useful for different things:
- Facebook is where most of my real life friends are. I also find it more personal interaction wise.
- I get news from Twitter, share news and interesting info. More informal interaction wise.
- Blogtalkradio has opened up a nice niche for conversations with interesting people.
- Cinchcast – I love to call in and get ideas out while driving then I share it later.
- Youtube – I am big on screencasts and moving towards more personal messages (videos of me mixed in)
- Amplify – I am making new friends, sharing more what I am reading more and selectively share to FB, Twitter, etc.
These aren’t all the tools I use, for me the key is really the data that comes in via Email. I need to re-evaluate my use of Google Reader and RSS also for incoming information. Here is the podcast that was inspired by my conversations with Paul:
While driving to meet a friend for coffee to discuss some upcoming business plans I was reminded how important social interaction is to me professionally and personally. I personally find what I refer to as analog networking and social interaction to be very rewarding. I have really come a long way in this regard from the IT guy who was content to sit behind his keyboard and interact mostly through IRC, Email and IM. Now I just couldn’t see living any other way, the connections I make with people inspire me to give that much more, to work that much harder and remind me of the important things in my life. Here is the Podcast I recorded while driving to my coffee appointment.
This is a catch up, I’ve got a couple of Podcasts from this week that I did not blog about. The first is from Wednesday regarding the situation in Haiti:
The second from this morning and it’s about people viewing, listening and reading our Social Media and Internet content in the future:

In my latest show on Blog Talk Radio I interviewed JP McDermott registered representative and insurance advisor with MassMutual Financial Group. JP Specializes in Career Transitions and is a personal resource for me when I learn of friends that are out of work or pondering career changes. JP’s journey for job transitions started in 2001 when he found himself out of work and he discovered The Job Connections group at Community Presbyterian Church in Danville, CA. Among other things we discuss LinkedIn, Google and Social Media as it relates to job searches. JP mentions a number of useful resources for people who are actively seeking employment.
