Social Media Today Podcast – Luis Suarez

Oh My … I am still enjoying my Twitter addiction, got started with it yesterday and just cannot get enough of it! I never thought I would be having so much fun in such a short time! And I certainly agree with James Governor when he said earlier on how addictive it can get, because it actually is and pretty much so! However, this is not a weblog entry about my twitterings. I am actually working on an upcoming post where I am going to share an interesting review of why I feel that people should give it a try in order to help improve the quality of their existing social networks by combining their regular weblogging with some more micro-blogging. So stay tuned for some more…

The main reason why I am sharing this particular weblog entry with you folks is to actually point you to a recent podcast I have been doing with the ever so insightful Maggie Fox, over at Social Media Group, as part of the Social Media Collective podcasting series.

If you would remember, not long ago I created a weblog entry over here mentioning how just recently I joined the Social Media Collective. In that post I mentioned how one of the different initiatives that is going on within the group is a podcasting series conducted by Maggie and just a few minutes ago she has just published episode #5 where I am the guest speaker.

Over the course of nearly 29 minutes, you would be able to listen to some of the stuff that both Maggie and myself talked about around the subject of social computing, or social media, as she prefers to call it, and a whole bunch of other stuff. And just to give you a quick preview of that podcast episode here you have got the Show Notes:

"Luis is incredibly enthusiastic about social media (or “social computing” as the Europeans seem to like to call it). We talk about his three blogs (Elsua.net, The Knowledge Management Blog and his internal one at IBM), how he loves the fact that the Collective feed allows him to keep up with all his favourite bloggers in one place, how blogging helped him break his email addiction, his work at IBM helping companies build collaborative communities, how Knowledge Management has changed, the notion of the enterprise-wide “Knowledge Jam”, IBM’s perspective on and history in Second Life, social media vs. social computing, and empirical proof that all Spaniards hate celery."

Thus without any much further ado, go and have a listen. Hope you enjoyed it! And feel free to append any comment over here, over at the Social Media Today with Maggie Fox Web site or at Maggie’s weblog.

Thanks ever so much, Maggie, for giving me this opportunity to participate from the Social Media Collective podcast series! Way too much fun!

  1. Hi Maggie ! Thanks a lot for dropping by and for the feedback comments! Yes, indeed, it surely was fun ! And no doubt that you know *exactly* what I am not going to cook with any time soon, right? 😛

    So it will have to be something else, something like … garlic! Hummmm… Yummy! 😀

  2. Hi John ! Thanks a bunch for the feedback! I am not sure what is going on, but the actual podcast is about 28 minutes long and downloads quite nicely from the following RSS newsfeed: http://www.smcpodcast.com/rss, so you may want to have a look at that feed, if you haven’t used it before. And if that does not work, let me know and I will have a look with Maggie about it. And see what is going on. It may have been also a temporary glitch. Who knows. Have a look and let me know if you still cannot download the full 28 minutes.

    Thanks again for the feedback!

  3. Hello Sawada-san! Thanks very much for dropping by and for sharing, once again, some really good feedback! Yes, indeed “Innovation Factory” is off and they are certainly getting started with a number of really good offerings worth while checking out. I must say that I had a couple of them already in my radar to comment on further on them, but it looks like the list keeps growing up further, so will probably be touching base on all of those different offerings as time goes by. Appreciated the heads up and the support bringing forward some really good stuff that IBM is keeping itself busy with. Keep up with sending along the superb links and we will cover them over here a bit more extensively as time permits. Thanks again for the feedback!
