BoomTown on the GigaOM Show This Week

That old charmer Om Malik lured me onto his online GigaOM Show on Revision3, where he and co-host Joyce Kim interviewed me for its seventh episode about a range of topics.

They included getting me to talk about what I really think of new owner Dow Jones owner Rupert Murdoch (quick summary: He’s certainly been a controversial media mogul, but we’ll see!), as well as my thoughts about blogging, traditional journalism and my two favorite Web companies to report on right now, Facebook and Yahoo.

Bonus: First up in the program is the always clever Ryan Block of Engadget, who I think is one of the sassier tech reporters out there.

I seem unable to embed the whole program–Om, get on it!–but you can see it here, and also hear it, too. But here are some pictures below, including me showing off my limited-edition Walt Mossberg “Craplets!” T-shirt.


Please see this disclosure related to me and Google.
