More MSM (Main Stream Media)


Some CNA producer thought it'd be a good idea to use a self-confessed (no need lah) technophobe to host a show about technology, presumably so that it'd be easy on tech-illiterate viewers. But then they got to see this on Monday night's show about blogs and podcasting, so I don't know how easy it was. Diana Ser did a Get Rea! show last October about blogging on CNA already, and besides podcasting, there wasn't anything new revealed in this That's IT show, except the fact that Timothy Go's just discovered Gizmodo and the like, and doesn't know how to pronounce Hanyu Pinyin names. There are a coupla slow news days coming up, so Main Stream Mejia's gonna wanna talk about blogs and the people behind them a fair bit. Stay tuned.

iTunes' party shuffle is playing a copy of: Real Fine Love - John Hiatt - Stolen Moments, of which I have the original CD and therefore didn't steal music.

And to round out the show? He highlights a blog on LJ that is friends only, and even says that it's friends only. Like, huh?

Well, I guess having him host "That's IT" is better than having him present actual news while he grins and reads news on wars and disasters...
