David Berlind is the executive editor at ZDNet. David is also one of the founders of Mashup Camp.
What is Mashup Camp? According to the About page Mashup Camp is:
an unconference-style event that’s dedicated to bringing together the Internet software mashup community for a face-to-face collaborative meetup where new relationships are formed, old relationships are nurtured, ideas are shared, mutiple balls are moved forward, and innovation happens in real-time.
David is involved in the organisation of Europe’s first Mashup Camp which will be held in Ireland on 10th-12th of November (07).
I will be interviewing David for a podcast tomorrow morning (Oct 25th – apologies for the late notification). If you have any questions you’d like me to put to David, feel free to leave thm in the comments.
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?
I have just published my second video podcast – an interview with Jan Blanchard of touristr.
I got loads of great feedback on my first vidcast and I tried to take as much of it on board, as possible.

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.

I just clicked Publish on the first Batt O’Keefe podcast. There will hopefully be more podcasts with Batt before the election (I was originally told 5-6 podcasts would happen) but what with my being away and Bertie calling the election (!) time is now short so getting many more out will prove difficult.
My involvement in this project was limited to getting questions in, asking the questions and producing and publishing the podcast post. The number of questions which came in was overwhelming and I was delighted with the level of interest in the podcast. Obviously in such a short podcast, getting to all the submitted questions was never going to be possible.
In fairness to Batt, he did answer a representative sample and he went even further and gave a commitment to answer all the remaining questions either through his blog, in future podcasts or directly by email.
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.
Batt O’Keeffe has been a TD (member of the Irish parliament) for Fianna FÃ¡il in Cork and is a currently a minister of state in the Department of the Environment.
I have been asked to host a series of podcasts with Batt in the run-up to the next national elections here in Ireland. The election date hasn’t been announced yet but it is widely expected to be around the end of May this year.
My first interview with Batt for these podcasts is provisionally booked for this Friday (April 27th).
If you have any questions you’d like me to put to Batt, please feel free to leave them in the comments of this post.
Update – comments closed on this post now as the interview is over. Thanks to everyone who contributed. Great questions. Really added to the podcast.
