I may have spoken too soon. After problems today with Skype+Pamela I'm thinking seriously of switching to use Zoom or another platform for recording.
 
Did my first podcast interview using Skype and Pamela. I did my editing using Sony Acid Pro. I've got a little tweaking to do but I thought it turned out pretty well.

Looks like I need a micro to mini usb cable to connect my Gear VR to my Samsung Galaxy. Is that the right specification or do I need something more specific. Frustrating as I was planning to take this to a local tech meeting tonight, but at least I would like to know what I need to buy at some point to be able to use the device. And wouldn't you have thought they could have tossed one in? First time I have ever needed one.

Chatbots,  the NBA and social media, new Instagram tools - this week's  curated items in Social Business BItes 
I don't have the knowledge to comment on the basketball aspects of this article, but it is a powerful story of how entrepreneurial leadership, with some help from social media, can turn a national sports league into a global phenomenon. It's especially instructive in how big-thinking ...

Has the Pulse interface changed?

I use Pulse weekly to pick up interesting posts, especially about social business. Today I opened Pulse and all I can see is a Daily Digest, which from the category/people links looks like it has been selected for my known preferences/connections. But I can't anymore see the left sidebar menu with various categories: as you will see from the screenshot there is just a blank where there was a sidebar. And there is no search feature.

So I don't get to see a bunch of posts under one category and I don'g get to browse. Progress?

Every time I have a conversation with entrepreneur developer Yuval Hertzog I get fresh ideas and insights. This podcast conversation is no exception. Disruptive thinking about #leadership.

I'm looking for a good checklist of what would be needed to set up a professional podcasting studio. I know that's like "how long is a piece of string", but I thought one or more of the experts here might know of a good source for that, maybe a roundtable episode +Ray Ortega ? 

I'm thinking physical setting + gear, more than say mental attitude.

I'm no expert on either Salesforce or MS Dynamics. What do your crystal balls say, O Experts, about the potential impact of the Microsoft+LinkedIn move (could we have an acronym for that? MLM? Maybe not.) on Salesforce. I've seen a couple of passing references in the past 24 hours but not enough detail for me to really get a handle on it.

Is the character limit for a LinkedIn summary still fixed at 2,000 (with spaces)? I've seen at least one which is well over that limit.

I have a challenge and need help. Short story is helping a friend submit a podcast to iTunes. Tested the RSS feed successfully, on Firefox. On iTunes the podcast displayed ok but would not play episode. Tried then to submit but unsuccessful. No category. And maybe a cover art problem, but on the test the cover art displays ok.

My challenge is the site is owned by a 3rd party. If I can get the site owner to help me upload an edited version of the feed XML, with category and better image details inserted, is that likely to work? Or am I missing something?

Yes, it would be much better to be doing this with a dedicated WordPress site and PowerPress etc and I have explained about getting it right from the beginning, but the friend would like this present arrangement to work as a temporary arrangement and I want to help him do that.

Hello Des,

I may be missing something, but http://bit.ly/20xb1Go is not a feed. It appears to be an HTML version of what a feed looks like though.

Thinking about a new series of webinars, I'm doing some testing of my assumptions about LinkedIn.

In your experience (yourself and/or clients), what's the thing about LinkedIn that most irritates/annoys/infuriates  you?

I'm wondering if there is a way to speed up an iTunes listing of a podcast file i had to replace. It seems the upload to the host was only partial, so a 26 min ep became 4 min 30 sec. Fixed now on the host (Blubrry) and on my podcast site, but iTunes still has the short version.

From what I've been able to glean in search, there might be some hope of iTunes updating over the next few days, or is that wishful thinking?

+Angelo Mandato it's not really a podcast question to follow up but if I recreate the blog post that will have a new url, right? So what would you do then, delete the old one or just make it private?

Does anyone have or can anyone point to a clear explanation of the prices for the basic Premium LinkedIn memberships - i.e.Job Seeker, Business Plus, Sales Navigator, Recruiter Lite? I think the formula is that for the three higher ones, i.e. excluding Job Seeker, you can save 20% by paying a year in advance. And I assume for each you can pay by the month. 

I've searched and searched on this. LinkedIn pages are unhelpful (surprise!) and various posts are mostly out of date.

I don't need this info right now but would love to have it sorted for the next time someone asks.
