This week on Interviews with Innovators, Jon Udell's guest is none other than Doug Kaye, the founder and original executive producer of IT Conversations. He's been working quietly, for a couple of years, on a new project, just recently announced, called PodCorps.
The mission of PodCorps is to record and publish important spoken-word events that occur anywhere in the world. It's a wonderful idea and, while the project is still in its formative stage. Jon speaks with Doug about how it's organized and how he thinks it might develop.
Doug Kaye is IT Conversations' original host, producer, developer, writer, interviewer and engineer. He launched IT Conversations in June 2003 and still produces many of the site's programs. Doug is now CTO of GigaVox Media and Executive Director of the Conversations Network.
In what seems to him like a previous lifetime, Doug was a recording engineer and sound editor in film and television. After mixing one too many TV commercials and English dubs of Lina Wertmuller films he made a break to the software industry. After another 18 years as an IT entrepreneur/CEO, he successfully worked his way down the corporate ladder and served as CTO/VP Engineering of four dot-com startups: one successful IPO, two shutdowns, one still on life support.
