New Thinking on New Media from More Mouths.

What happened to Media Hacks?

Nothing. We’re still recording and each episode keeps getting more and more  personal.

We still record Media Hacks every two weeks (or so). The problem is me (as usual).  As work piles on, it’s hard to post everything in all of the different spaces. I am going to do my best to resolve this in 2010, but until then, if you would like to subscribe, listen or download the Media Hacks Podcast, please subscribe to Six Pixels of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast. From there you will get everything we record and publish. We’re already up to episode #22 of Media Hacks. The general flow of Six Pixels of Separation is one week it’s that Podcast and every other week it’s an episode of Media Hacks. It’s not as confusing as it sounds.

Many thanks and apologies for the confusion.

Episode #182 of Six Pixels of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast is now live and ready for you to listen to. It’s also episode #22 of Media Hacks.

It’s hard to believe we made it this far - almost one full-year of Media Hacks. This will be the last Media Hacks for 2009, and in this episode we discuss the language issue (again, and hopefully for the last time), the changing face of the e-book, the speed of which we’re getting new technology and how this year panned out. We’ve got Christopher S. Penn (aka The Ninja), Hugh McGuire and myself on this episode. Lots of different topics with lots of back and forth. Enjoy the conversation…

Episode #180 of Six Pixels of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast is now live and ready for you to listen to. It’s also episode #21 of Media Hacks.

We have a pretty full crew on this latest episode of the Media Hacks audio podcast. C.C. Chapman, Hugh McGuire, Julien Smith and me tackle everything from the language we use to augmented reality. It’s a lively debate about our new world as we all seem to grapple with how to make a Podcast something more and something different than just another radio show. We also look at how mobile and online social networks are quickly becoming one as more and more gaming-type components get added to the fray. This Podcast is not work-safe (it rarely is when Julien is involved). Enjoy the conversation…

Episode #178 of Six Pixels of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast is now live and ready for you to listen to. It’s also episode #20 of Media Hacks.

This episode was recorded live in New York City. In a very rare moment, the entire Media Hacks crew - Chris Brogan, C.C. Chapman, Christopher S. Penn, Julien Smith and myself (with the exception of Hugh McGuire) - converged in New York City for the Web 2.0 Expo (and Web 2.Open). Wednesday night after dinner, we all met up at the Roger Smith Hotel (in Julien’s chambers) and recorded the following rambles, tangents, swear words and non-relevant-to-marketing conversations. That being said, it got interesting, we wavered, we switched, we debated and we made a ton of inside jokes. In the end, the conversation looks at the audience, the new media and those swimming in the deep end of it all. Enjoy the conversation (but keep in mind this is not work safe)…

Episode #176 of Six Pixels of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast is now live and ready for you to listen to. It is also episode #19 of Media Hacks.

It’s not a great excuse, but business travel has kept the Six Pixels of Separation Podcast from being published - which (as you will hear) is a very lame excuse. Regardless, here is also a new episode of Media Hacks (it’s #19). It’s actually just a very personal conversation with Julien Smith (In Over Your Head and Trust Agents) about community, business, communication, business books and how to own your platform(s). The other co-hosts (C.C. Chapman, Chris Brogan, Christopher S. Penn and Hugh McGuire could not make the call). Also, it’s Julien, so please note that some of the language is not work-safe (like every second word out of his mouth). Enjoy the conversation.

Episode #174 of Six Pixels of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast is now live and ready for you to listen to. It’s also episode #18 of Media Hacks.

If you felt like the conversation went a little kooky when we tried to discuss, “what is a book?” on the last episode of Media Hacks, you’ll be pleased to know we get just as lost trying to figure out “what is literacy?” If that wasn’t enough the four of us attempt to discuss the value of Google Wave (only C.C. has actually used it). There’s also some discussion about school books, education, magazines and newspapers as well. On the show is C.C. Chapman, Hugh McGuire, Julien Smith and myself. Media Hacks does have some language in it, so it may not be work-safe. Enjoy…

Episode #172 of Six Pixels of Separation - The Twist Image Podcast is now live and ready for you to listen to. It’s also episode #17 of Media Hacks.

Finally, back with a new episode of Media Hacks where we dissect everything from video games and iPhone apps to why Christopher S. Penn loves shooting people online. This episode features C.C. Chapman (Managing The Gray), Hugh McGuire (The Book OvenHuffington Post), Penn (The Financial Aid Podcast,Marketing Over Coffee), and myself (both Chris Brogan and Julien Smith could not make the call). Should video games be more than just shameless fun? Should companies allow their employees to use Social Media? Some are using it wisely, while some might just be trying to kill some time. From there, we get into a very semantic conversation about what is a “book” and the future of the Internet. Enjoy the conversation…

Two of the regular co-hosts of Media Hacks are Chris Brogan andJulien Smith. After meeting at the first PodCamp Boston, the two decided to write a book together. The result is Trust Agents. The book - which was released this week - made it to the New York Times‘ best-seller’s list. Not only are we all very proud of the co-authors, but we decided to spend the bulk of this episode discussing and dissecting the concepts in Trust Agents. We also wish C.C. Chapman tons of continued success on his recent news (you have to listen to hear what it is). Enjoy the conversation…

As usual, there is some language, so please keep in mind that this Podcast is not work safe. Many major happenings in both the technology, communications and Social Media space. We discuss everything from the unconference movement to Bloggers who take themselves (and their community) maybe a little too seriously. We also chat about Twitter (of course) where Hugh explains why it is more like talking than a media channel (or something) and some Googley stuff. Enjoy the conversation…

Another fine mess that we’ve gotten ourselves into. This is the new episode of Media Hacks and features some great conversation and some coloured language (so, it’s not work safe). We discuss everything from buying ads on viral videos before they break big and how things spread (and how fast they go away). Do brands still need to worry about what people are saying about them online? Enjoy the conversation…
