The Tech.pinions Opinion Cast: An Evolving Idea

on July 12, 2012

An analyst colleague of mine and I were joking recently at a major tech trade show. We thought it would be funny if we put up a table in the hallway with a sign that said Ask the Analyst and charged a fee per 5 min for our advice.

Of course this would never work but we thought it was an entertaining idea to kick around. I personally don’t listen to many Podcasts, to be honest. If I want insight or perspective I call the people I trust, they are usually analysts or executives, and we have a conversation. Yet I have been getting many emails from readers asking if we would do a podcast. So we decided to try our hand again but we decided to call it an Opinion Cast and focus more on sharing our wide ranging opinions on matters related to tech. So tomorrow in the afternoon we will have our Podcast rebranded as our Opinion Cast to stream or download.

But I wanted reach out to readers prior and see if there were any specific topics they would like to see us address on this Opinion Cast. We already have a few topics in mind but if anyone would like to submit specific topics for us to tackle we will be glad to consider them for this or future Opinion Casts.

In the future I would like to try streaming one live and letting readers chime in with questions or comments. I’m just thinking out loud here as we try to figure out how to do something valuable with the Opinion Cast.

Any thoughts, ideas, or topic suggestions are appreciated. Feel free to make them in the comments below.
