Phil Dobbie of BTalk on BNET and I talk about a whole new way of getting things done. If you need an expert or an extra set of hands to perform a task, then crowdsource it.

6PR Big Weekend – FutureTech Segment – 26 September 2010

Ted Bull

Rise and rise of YouTube, iPad, Apps, Amazon sells 1.8 eBooks to every hardcover and why FaceBook is not at all evil were just some of the topics that Ted Bull and I chatted about as we reviewed the past six months of what’s happened since the weekend show went on its winter break.

But it’s summer now and FutureTech is back for its fourth (4th) year as a weekly segment on Perth’s 6PR Big Weekend program – ah, it’s good to back.

Listen to this weeks segment now, and join me on Twitter for in between news and views from the future.
