#257 is delayed; thank Virgin Media

Shel’s in Las Vegas on vacation and Neville’s doing the show solo today. Unfortunately, he cannot access anything via FTP along with a number of websites, including some used in show production. Neville has spent nearly an hour on the phone with his ISP—Virgin Media—but rather than look at their own systems, they have suggested the problem could be a virus. Nonsense, of course; Neville’s sister is having similar problems with the same service, and Shel has been through similar issues that were always resolved when his ISP restarted their own servers. The problem has gone on now for four hours. All of which means there will be a delay in getting the show up; it could be as late as tomorrow. We apologize for the delay. Send your complaints directly to Virgin Media, which may well lose a customer in the near future.

FIR Speakers & Speeches: Where Podcasting Fits in the Business World - July 9, 2007

Podcastingbookcover-thumbIn June 2007, How to Do Everything with Podcasting was published. Written by FIR co-hosts Shel Holtz with Neville Hobson, the book walks you step by step through the process of creating, broadcasting and promoting your own podcast.

In this FIR Speakers & Speeches podcast, Shel and Neville read a complete chapter from the book - “Chapter 20: Where Podcasting Fits in The Business World.”

This chapter is the introduction to Part 5 of the 360-page book, “Use a Podcast as a Business Communication Tool,” covering business podcasting today, podcasting as a marketing supplement, podcasting’s advantages and the regulatory argument.

More information about the book at the companion website: www.everythingwithpodcasting.com.
