Steve Forbes Responds to PodTech Re: Podcast and Cover Story

Monday I posted an podcast with Steve Forbes in his first ever podcast.  Forbes cover story had a negative blog response from many prominent bloggers. Shel Israel sent an open letter to the author of the post Daniel Lyons. However some think that bloggers are being “played?.

Today Steve Forbes sent me the following email to respond to my original email.  The thread is posted below.

Dear John:

            The point of the story is that any technology can be used positively or negatively – from pamphlets and newspapers to radio, TV, cable and the Net

— mediums have changed, have made communications easier, more accessible. Blogging is a blessing, but one like anything can be used and misused.Sincerely,

Subject: our podcast last week

I wanted to touch base with you regarding our podcast from last week.  I am planning on posting it Monday morning but I saw today that the blog community has reacted negatively to the cover story from Forbes calling bloggers a “lynch mob?.  In our podcast you talked very proactively about the benefits of technology and social media.  I feel that this is a conflict with the reporting from Daniel Lyons.

I wanted to get you the opportunity to make a comment that I could post on my podcasting site.  You can just email me or call at 650-xxx-xxxx

Thank you for your time last week for your first podcast.  The content and message was great.Best Regards,

John Furrier
