Going Digital

Going Digital Podcast

We need to a better job of talking about the benefits, opportunities and challenges of using technology in meetings and events.

Mike McAllen and I decided to launch a new 20 minute podcast called “Going Digital with Samuel J. Smith” that concentrates on technology strategy, social media, new tools and the latest trends in meeting technology.

How should you listen to these podcasts?

If you have Twitter Attention Deficit Disorder like me, then listening to a 20 minute podcast while sitting at your desk could seem like an impossible job.  I have found it much easier to concentrate and get enjoyment out of podcasts by listening to them while I am in my car, working in the yard, or am on the go. We suggest that you download this show to your iPod, iPhone or other MP3 player.
