Peter McDermott discusses finding your niche with independent filmmaker Baber Afzal and singer/songwriter/musician Matty James. We got together to discuss whether or not the idea of being a "renaissance man" has been lost and what the benefits of focusing on a niche really are versus exploring all of your interests.

I’m Always Looking for What’s Next My interest in technology started with an Apple IIe in my kindergarten classroom, and programming BASIC by the 2nd grade. After that I took on a huge interest in broadcast both in front of the camera and behind the scenes. Gaining even further interest after watching ZDTV (later TechTV and now G4TV) I decided to study Journalism & Electronic Media in college. Now, after appearing on several major networks and creating iReports for CNN, I have moved my interest of technology and broadcast into my own weekly video podcast at MicroPatrol.com, borrowing lots of expertise from Leo Laporte’s TWiT network. Currently I’m looking to collaborate with other Nashville technology and new media enthusiasts to find untapped niche markets in the podcast realm and to create interesting and interactive content that inspires people to think, build and create. I’m always looking forward to meet new people and share their success through my podcast and website. If you’re interested in getting involved, I would love to talk to you. if you have a new product or business in the Nashville area that you would like to pitch, I would love to showcase your stuff!
