Om Malik on ‘The Circuit’: A Must-Watch

July 1, 2008 10:45 AM

So I’m having lunch solo yesterday at a cute little café called Slow Food in San Francisco. (And if you’re wondering why I was there, it was because I had just finished appearing as a guest on NPR’s “Talk of the Nation” and yes, you can listen to me talk about viral marketing campaigns here. And as I’m waiting for my food it hits me—I don’t have to just sit there! I have an iPod. I can catch up on Web video.

And, folks, these are the moments when I love, love, love my iPod—the interstitial moments when you feel like you have a little secret, a little something up your sleeve, because you’ve pre-loaded your video iPod with really good stuff you can pretty much only get online.

In this case, I had several episodes of Mojo HD’s Web series “The Circuit.” The show is a sort of tech show, but done in a “Daily Show” style. Translation: It’s funny and irreverent and you need to subscribe to it in iTunes, because this is one of the best shows on the Web.

The bit that cracked me up was this interview conducted by the show’s host, Deepak, with tech god Om Malik of Gigaom.com fame. So here you go!
