I had the opportunity yesterday morning to join MIP on his weekly: mip’s midweek update – podcast in which he added a skypecast which would have allowed up to 100 people to join in.
After I ironed out some technical issues on my end, it seemed to work well. I enjoyed the opportunity to try this out and was very pleased about how well it worked. I think this is a great opportunity to enhance communication medium and have people join the masses.
A couple of quick thoughts.
- A great way to cost effectively invite the masses to a public conversation. This clearly has some issues of control over content. You will not be able to be sure of the nature of others words.
- An opportunity to actually turn podcasts into conversations.
- This would be a great way to hold general purpose group meetings and then publish them – ie. an industry architects circle or PMO or Industry conversation on a regular basis.
I am going to go and see if I can add my original idea of a this week in data podcast to a monthly 20 minute poscast where I can invite various people to join if interested.
