Web Hosting Show and Conference News - Two Shows Worth Listening To
(Page 4 of 4 )
Call Bob Parsons what you will, but the CEO of GoDaddy (http://www.godaddy.com) has a real talent for saying and doing things that make people want to listen. Thus you’ll be interested to hear that Parsons launched a radio show entitled “Life Online with Bob Parsons.” The show is available both as a podcast, and via satellite on Sirius and XM radio. Parsons plans to focus his discussions on the Internet, business and entrepreneurial topics. If his blog is any indication, you’ll certainly hear plenty of political commentary on web hosting related issues such as the recent agreement between ICANN and VeriSign.
In the first broadcast, Parsons made a $10,000 donation to Perverted-Justice (http://www.perverted-justice.com/), one of the guests appearing on the show. Perverted-Justice helps police catch sexual predators by enlisting volunteers to appear in online chat rooms and pose as underage children. Parsons spoke approvingly of how the organization was doing “great work to keep the Internet safe for children.”
Another show worth mentioning is a podcast. The Web Hosting Show (http://webhostingshow.com/) is written and hosted by Mitch Keeler. Sounding rather like a young Fred Rogers with just a hint of a Southern drawl, Keeler has created more than 50 podcasts covering various web hosting topics, all available from his website. He turns out new podcasts twice a week.
His most recent one (at the time of this writing), just under 12 minutes long, includes a very well done site review that he gave at the request of one of his regular listeners (complete with advice for improvement), and tips on the best way to sell a domain name. In previous podcasts, he has mentioned useful web hosting resources he has found, conducted interviews, covered the topic of web hosting innovation and what various web hosts are doing to achieve it, talked about how to handle credit card fraud, and so on. Those who enjoy learning new things more through listening rather than reading will certainly appreciate this resource; Mitch’s calm, clear delivery guarantees his listeners will hear and understand every word.
