 The Tech Blog Writer Podcast

 

Tech columnist Neil Hughes is the host of the Tech Blog Writer Podcast that is also available on iTunesStitcher, PlayerFM and TuneIn Radio.

I launched this podcast to add real human voices to my written articles and bring them to life. My aim was to create a top podcast that unites the global community and connect every tech fan and entrepreneur in the world.

Steve Jobs once said, "Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower." This show aims to empower those followers to learn from those on a similar journey so they too can create their own path by educating and mentoring.

Over the next few weeks, big businesses will be relying on their IT infrastructure to have no downtime during their busiest shopping period.

Predicted figures:

  • £1.07bn Black Friday
  • £943m Cyber Monday
  • £856m Boxing Day
  • £4.9bn Total five-week period

With potential costs of £200k an hour for website downtime, will those outside of IT begin to see the ROI of investing in security and network infrastructure?

Meanwhile, Ash Smith from London asks:

As corporate IT departments receive criticism for their sluggishness in a digital age how can we balance good solid effective guardianship and management of IT services vs adopting new technologies that are changing faster than we can implement them in a large organisation.

Inbox Zero is a rigorous approach to email management aimed at keeping the inbox empty.

Unroll.me is an app that brings a Tinder-esque way of cleaning up your inbox by just swiping to unsubscribe and undo years of damage within a few minutes. For example, I somehow have notched up 167 email subscriptions of newsletters, social media alerts and stores that I brought a Christmas gift from in back in 2007 and all have now gone forever after only 5 minutes of swiping.

The app is an incredibly easy way to regain control of your inbox by following the simplistic swiping options and certainly makes you wonder why it has taken this long for something like this to arrive on the scene.

By simply swiping left you can unsubscribe from the email subscriptions you don’t want and no future emails from these senders will land in your inbox ever again.

Waking up in the morning and not having to delete a mountain of emails is certainly a blessing. However, this new super efficient method of decluttering inboxes of newsletters will be seen as a curse to freelancers and entrepreneurs who are desperately trying to build email lists to increase their following or promote a product.

Are We Reading Less?

The literary tug of war between physical books and their disruptive nemesis E-Books continues to divide passionate readers and remains the topic of many a heated debate in book clubs across the globe. But are we actually reading less?

Will You Broadcast Yourself from Periscope to Apple TV?

Despite my initial reservations, there is no doubt that Periscope is becoming a massive game changer that allows anyone to build their own community or digital tribe in a more visual real time manner that even podcasts cannot compete with.

Apple’s Tim Cook famously said “We Believe the Future of TV Is Apps” but the success of Periscope suggests that it could be tuning into each other's living rooms rather than traditional TV channel hopping.

When your favourite artist is playing a gig on the other side of the world, Periscope also enables music fans to tune into the performance and sample the atmosphere via someone else's smartphone.

As live television becomes more and more produced, it can also become less genuine. This is what excites us about bringing Periscope to the Apple TV — the notion that you, your friends and family can share what’s happening in the world right now, together - Periscope

The Periscope launch on Apple TV looks set to be a real game changer.

I have received over 20 E-Mails from listeners who are worried at the dramatic dip in readership figures and their work being featured on one of the LinkedIn Pulse channels.

  • Has LinkedIn changed their algorithm to feature blog posts?
  • Are LinkedIn only featuring Influencers rather than everyday users?
  • Why have my viewing figures taken a nose dive?
  • How do I increase my chances of getting featured?
  • What kind of content are LinkedIn looking for?

These are just a few of the questions that I have received, so I reached out directly to them to find answers to the questions that writers are currently asking.
