We’re posting our interviews this weekend. Listen here. Keep checking as new interviews are added.
During the 2006 International CES, Pat Meier Associates presented live broadcasts and podcasts from Lunch @ Piero’s, its exclusive yearly noontime gathering for technology innovators and the media, featuring a wide assortment of compelling consumer electronics products and technologies, many that are making their public debut at the lunch. Spreading the word to audiences beyond the journalists at the showcase, “LIVE AT PIERO’S” interviews may be heard here, where listeners can also subscribe to podcasts. The shows, featuring special guests and sponsors, will be available year-round online. “Live at Piero’s” is hosted by former San Francisco broadcast personality Russ Johnson and produced on the WorldVibrations Radio Station & Podcaster, a complete automated and live Internet radio station and podcast producer in a box.
Live interviews this year featured guests including John Boucard, Founder of Infinite Machines who, with Spider-Man creator Stan Lee, created Power Patrol digital jewelry. John also invented and demonstrated Expericons, tiny charms that have the ability to link physical objects to digital experiences. Also, special guest, Suzanne Kantra Kirschner, Senior Technology Editor, Popular Science, provided a historical look at consumer electronics – what works and what doesn’t, the hopes and the fizzles and what’s hot this year.
Lunch @ Piero’s is independently produced and open to journalists by invitation. “We realize how hard journalists work to get their stories, and we want to make it fascinating, focused, convenient and delicious,” said Pat Meier-Johnson, producer of Lunch @ Piero’s. “Our goal is to present the underlying technologies as well as finished products in the hopes that consumer electronics journalists and industry analysts will share with their audience not only the “What,” but the “How” and “Why” of today’s consumer electronics and technology developments.”
