Intruders.tv launches in Ireland

In case you haven’t come across it elsewhere already today, Conn O’Muineachain has launched a channel on Intruders.tv focussing on Irish startups.

From the About page:

Our main objective is to take you to the major conferences and events around the world, interview entrepreneurs and investors, visit exciting startups and give you a first look at the hottest technology.

We will meet face to face with the major players in our industry and have open conversations with them about their work, current projects, entrepreneurship and whatever else comes to mind!

Intruders TV Ireland is operated by Edgecast Media Ltd. If you would like to contact us with suggestions, comments, corrections, please email conn(at)intruders(dot)tv.

That’s excellent news, congrats to Conn and the Intruders team for getting this off the ground. Conn, you’ll have to come along to the it@cork conference this year to get some footage – the speaker list hasn’t been published but I can tell you it will blow your socks off!

Like my own first video podcast, Conn’s first interview is with (the normally shy and retiring – not!) Conor O’Neill. Am I imagining it or is Conor wearing the same Twitter jumper in both?

Video interview with Walter Higgins of Sxoop.com

Apologies if you came across this post on my PodLeaders.com site already but I posted an interview I did with Walter Higgins there last week and I know there are some readers of this blog not subscribed to PodLeaders so I thought I’d post it here too.

Walter’s company Sxoop Technologies are the creators od Pxn8 – an online photo editor (think Photoshop in a browser).

Here’s the interview:

There are direct download links on the PodLeaders post.

My first video podcast

I published my first video podcast this evening over on PodLeaders.com. As it is the first one, I am re-publishing it here too.

The podcast is an interview with LouderVoice‘s Conor O’Neill. Conor discusses how the site is based on Microformats (making the data fully portable), how the sites makes extensive use of tagging and how you can subscribe to RSS feeds for almost every aspect of the site.

New podcasts coming up – any questions?

I will be conducting a couple of interesting podcast interviews in the next few days for podleaders.com.

The first is with dotMobi CEO Neil Edwards and the second is with Microsoft’s Silverlight Project Manager, Brad Abrams.

If you have any questions you’d like me to put to them, leave your questions in the comments of this post, or in the comments on the relevant podleaders posts.

Any questions for Neville Hobson?

Neville Hobson is co-host of For Immediate Release, one of the better podcasts on the net at the moment and one I try not to miss.

Neville is a big proponent of the virtues of Second Life and is heavily involved in a company called Crayon, which specialises in helping customers make sense of all the new media out there. Crayon held their launch in Second Life.

I will be interviewing Neville tomorrow morning (March 30th) for a PodLeaders podcast. If you have any questions you would like me to put to him, please leave them in the comments of this post.

Any questions for Ross Mayfield?

Tomorrow afternoon I’ll be interviewing Ross Mayfield, co-founder and CEO of Socialtext for a podcast on PodLeaders.com.

Socialtext makes enterprise social software for collaboration – i.e. Wikis, for corporate customers mostly.

If you have any questions you’d like me to put to Ross, please feel free to leave them in the comments of this post.
