(Gawkwire) – Michele Neylon and Conn Ó Muíneacháin have launched Technology.ie, a weekly podcast focusing on what they know best – the tech industry.
The podcast, which has been in the works for some time is collaboration between Neylon who is the founding director of Irish registrar and hosting company, Blacknight (http://www.blacknight.com) and Ó Muíneacháin of EdgeCast Media (http://www.edgecast.ie) , a radio and digital media production company. Both gentlemen are well known in the Irish Internet and technology communities.
While both Blacknight and EdgeCast are technology companies, Neylon and Ó Muíneacháin seek to deliver content that reaches farther than their respective industry niches.
The first episode touches on New gTLDs, portable podcasting, profiting from online social media, Teamer.net, Zemanta, the dangers of over-investing resources and attention in a single form of social media and Klout.
Michele Neylon states: “ I’ve wanted to do a podcast for quite some time but I didn’t want to focus only on what Blacknight is doing. There are a lot of companies and individuals doing really cool stuff in the broader world of technology and we want to shine a spotlight on them.”
A combination of Neylon’s outspoken comic delivery and Ó Muíneacháin’s no-nonsense approach makes the podcast entertaining as well as educational.
Neylon continues: “For me, Conn is the perfect co-host. We are obsessive about gadgets, websites and online services to the point that we are aware of a lot of new stuff in its early stages. There aren’t a lot of people who can be obsessive on that level and still be great fun to have a conversation with.”
Neylon and Ó Muíneacháin will be sitting down together and with guests every week to discuss the latest gadgets, gossip and the new frontiers of technology.
