There seems to be more action on the wireless (radio) these days. My friend Dave Gibbons, at Radio Active, has launched a new site where one can download songs via cellphone. He encourages people to pass the word about Jiggy, though as far as I can tell, it’s for the New Zealand market only (cellphones aren’t as global as the ’net).
Secondly, Groove 107·7 FM, one of my favourites and my must-listen when in town, is spreading its word virally, and I want to prove that this can be done. Its offer:
Wellington’s Groove 107.7FM are prepared to offer you $300 free radio advertising with no strings attached. All you have to do to qualify is forward this email on to the owner or manager of at least 7 businesses who would like more Wellington customers and also forward it back to email@example.com
Again, it’s very local, but if anyone wants to take advantage of the offer in Wellington, New Zealand, give me a holler via my feedback form or just add a comment below, and I will forward the message to you.
There is a theory that despite the high internet penetration in New Zealand, we don’t have a sufﬁcient online culture to take advantage of viral campaigns. I think differently—and radio, of all media, needs them hugely. Posted by Jack Yan, 00:47

NoteEntries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
