My name is Dane Golden and I’m a consultant and web show producer. You can find me, friend me or follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+. Here’s an article in which I was interviewed for the Harvard Nieman Journalism Lab about developments in web show advertising.
I recenty helped produce the Webby Award-finalist World’s Fastest Car Show for Swirl Integrated Marketing. I also advise MediaOneon their live-streaming services.
In 2010 I started the podcast “HEY with Dane Golden” to chat with fascinating people around the web and around the world. I also write about some of these interviews and people on my blog, as time allows.
From 2006 to 2010, I fulfilled various roles at the TWiT network (http://live.twit.tv), owned by longtime noted tech broadcaster Leo Laporte. My positions included president, executive producer, and vice president of programming.
TWiT is the No. 1 provider of live streaming tech news and podcasts. We also created great shows about food, adventure, science and comedy. While I was executive producer, our shows won the People’s Choice Podcast Awards six times. In the Technology/Science category we won in 2007 (Security Now), 2008 (This Week in Tech, aka TWiT), and 2009 (Security Now). Also in 2009 we won the awards for Best Video Podcast (This Week in Tech), Best Comedy Podcast (Daily Giz Wiz), and Best Food Podcast (Munchcast). Among other accomplishments, I also co-created the popular show “This Week in Google” (listen here).
Here’s a good video from Feb. 2010 which describes what TWiT was all about, done by Jonathan Marks See me at 11:03 into the video:
Here’s another one where I was interviewed by Catherine Hall (at the time I was much more used to begin off-camera).
I’ve been doing work at the meeting point of entertainment and technology essentially since those two forces started trying to get together. Here’s another interview of me way back in 1996 when I tried to explain the Internet to a local TV host.
