Hamilton tech podcasts: Sounds Legit
October 19, 2012 in Community
A couple months back a friend of mine asked me if there were any Hamilton-area podcasts about technology. At the time I wasn’t aware of any, but it turns out there are at least a couple. On Wednesday in this blog post I talked about The New Biz done by Geoff Campbell (@GeoffCampbell1) of Graphic Source.
The other tech podcast with a Hamilton community connection that I’m aware of is Sounds Legit which is co-hosted by Martin Kuplens-Ewart (@mkuplens) of Brave New Code (@BraveNewCode). Sounds Legit is featured on the Motionblur Media (@motionblurmedia) podcast network and covers recent developments in technology and how they touch people’s lives, including a lot of user experience and product design topics. Martin is Product Designer at Brave New Code and is a local user experience expert with some pretty cool experiences referenced in his Sounds Legit bio:
I’ve always spent a lot of time thinking about how people experience the world â€“ through rituals, interactions with each other, or with tools. In my teens I applied those ideas to the creation of an international youth NGO, giving advice to UN agencies, multinational businesses, government ministers, and quite a few charities, too. Now I spend my time thinking about service and product experience design, and working with companies and organizations in Canada to create rich interactive experiences.
Brave New Code itself is most well known for WPtouch Pro, a WordPress plug-in that lets you easily create a great mobile/tablet version of your website. In fact 3 million people are using it, including clients like CNN Tech Fortune and Stephen Fry.
The Sounds Legit podcasts are 40 minutes to an hour or so in length, check out some of these more recent episodes:
