Back in April, during NetChange week, I was interviewed for GetInvolved.ca as part of their DigitalU podcast series (a companion to the TVO production, “Get Involved“).

I walked away from the interview worried that I’d been a little too scattered or rambling, but I think they edited it down quite nicely and I’m actually really happy with how it turned out.

What We Covered

  • Building Momentum with social media
  • HoHoTo
  • The Evolution of Blogging
  • Anonymity vs. Transparency

I think it turned out alright – I’m really excited to finally have full days to start processing this stuff and getting the community side of VizThink rolling. Expect to see a lot of activity over the next 30-60 days as we start to roll out the community platform on our site and as more cities start to hold their own events as well.

There’s also some spots left for the VizThink workshops with dave Gray and Karl Gude – May 2 in NYC & May 7 in Chicago Go here for details.
