The Mobilecast - Eps.1 - A Year of Going Mobile

Welcome to the Family - The Mobilecast

We hinted at this a few weeks ago, but we're glad to finally announce that we're expanding The Cloudcast (.net) into a new technology domain - Mobile. Leading those efforts will be Brian Katz (@bmkatz), with a new podcast called The Mobilecast (@themobilecast). Brian does a great job with Episode 1, bringing in Benjamin Palador (@PaladorBenjamin), who just recently finished a yearlong experiment of going "Mobile Only" for his work life.

We're really excited to see where Brian is able to take this new podcast, especially given the way that mobile technologies are changing all of our lives (both personally and at work). For listeners of the show, Brian has been a guest a few times in the past (here, here and here). He writes a great blog about mobile topics over at A Screw's Loose, and hosts a weekly Twitter chat with the hashtag #mobilebiz.
