Back in the early days of podcasting (2005-08) I ran a popular podcast called PodLeaders where I regularly interviewed luminaries from the tech world such as Vint Cerf, Matt Mullenweg, Robert Scoble, and others.
I have always had a soft spot for podcasts. I love listening to them as I walk the dog every morning, and/or when I’m on planes, or when I’m driving. And so, with the recent upsurge in podcast popularity, I recently decided to start up a new podcast focussing on the Internet of Things. I’m calling it IoT Heroes.
I will publish roughly one episode a week. Sometimes it will be a dedicated podcast, more often it will be a case of republishing the audio from one of the video interviews I carry out.
For example, I have just published as a podcast the recent video interview I did with Fybr CTO, Mrinal Wadhwa. Fybr do the full network stack for IoT devices which need to be in the field, reliably sending info back to base and using very little power so the battery life is in the order of 10 years. Typical use cases are parking meters for cities, soil moisture sensors for agriculture/horticulture, and sewage flow sensors for waste water organisations.
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.

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!
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 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.
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.
