    Gillmor Gang: WhatsApp, Doc

    The Gillmor Gang — John Borthwick, Dan Farber, Robert Scoble, Kevin Marks, John Taschek, and Steve Gillmor — bask in the afterglow of the 19 Billion Dollar Bash.

    Gillmor Gang: Stirred Not Shaken

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — talk everything under the sun; Flappy Bird, Nadella and Bill, Foursquare, and the politics of health care.

    Gillmor Gang: Brand Royalty

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — seem perfectly willing to predict the futility of the next Microsoft CEO, and even perhaps the next Bill Gates. But we can only successor-surf so long before returning to the more heady war of the social stream. You can decide for yourself, but this feisty show was supercharged by… Read More

    Gillmor Gang: Turn Turn Turn

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — christen the maiden voyage, or shakeout cruise, of Newtek’s new TriCaster 860. The learning curve is intense, but the results are worth it. Hope you enjoy the show. Recorded in HD but not yet released in that format. I’d be remiss if I didn’t take note of the passing of Pete Seeger… Read More

    Gillmor Gang: Competitive Blocking

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — ring in the New Year in celebration of surviving yet another crisis in the venture capital community.

    Gillmor Gang: Robophobia

    The Gillmor Gang — Danny Sullivan, Dan Farber, Robert Scoble, John Taschek, and Steve Gillmor — talk about what it means to be human in a digital age. The rise of the stream threatens to overwhelm us, and the Gang seems bent on drowning in wearables.

  • Gillmor Gang: Brain Chemistry

    Gillmor Gang: Brain Chemistry

    The Gillmor Gang — John Taschek, Keith Teare, Dan Farber, and Steve Gillmor — take the edge off of a slow week with a relaxed conversation about Instagram and Twitter direct messages, online anonymity, its effects on the brain, and Google’s reasons for cacheing Gmail images. Occasionally Farber disappears to throw another log on the fire. Read More

  • Gillmor Gang: Private Practices

    Gillmor Gang: Private Practices

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — work off that stuffed feeling with a show devoted to the intersection between public and private messaging.

    Gillmor Gang: Daft Monopolists

    The Gillmor Gang — John Taschek, Keith Teare, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — act their age in the style of Steve Ballmer, who thinks he’s of an older time where the world’s not going. I’m not so sure he’s right about that, what with SnapChat taking a pass on $3 billion ephemeral oh-so-direct messages. Surely the snark social leader fits like a glove with… Read More

    Gillmor Gang: Hocus Pocus

    The Gillmor Gang — Danny Sullivan, Robert Scoble, John Taschek, Kevin Marks, and Steve Gillmor — find themselves in a quandary over Steven Elop’s alleged exit strategy for Microsoft.

    The Gillmor Gang — Robert Scoble, Doc Searls, John Taschek, Keith Teare, and Steve Gillmor — demonstrate once again a complete disregard for the trending topics of the week.
