Future scanning: wi-fi, communications, tech, and media disruptions

Business Live 040817 podcasr artworkHere’s a tasty word salad: The Internet of Things, enhanced connectivity, borderless collaboration. Let’s mix it all up with some robo-journalism, crowdsourced news, and templated, data-driven stories.

Sprinkle on a light dressing and enjoy. It’s your new serving of the Business Live radio show, first broadcast on Sheffield Live FM radio on Friday 4th August. Listen to the podcast below.

The show gives you an update about some of the enormous changes taking place in journalism and the media right now. Then it features an interview with Neil Reid, an internationally published author of three books about wireless technology, including his latest best-seller “The Why of Wireless.”

Neil has worked on Wi-Fi deployments at some of the highest profile public venues in the world. At the invitation of ITI Network Services, (one of my and Keep Your Fork’s clients) Neil recently came to Sheffield – and I recorded this in-depth interview in which he offers a view into the near future for Wi-Fi and advanced networking.

Plus there are new figures from Big Society Capital about social investment in the UK, and other business and social enterprise updates.
