Shaq at the Blogger Lounge

It’s the last day of my SXSW coverage. I started the day with breakfast tacos 16 floors above Austin. We learned about an analytics took that included Tumblr. From there I stopped by the blogger lounge where I found my friend Calvin won a Samsung camera. What was really funny was the fact he took a few pictures with it, someone from Samsung saw it and awarded him a Galaxy Tab 2. Congrats, Calvin!

I stopped in another session – this one asking if Podcasting needed a reboot. The show had Colin Anderson, Roman Mars, Jesse Thorn and Helen Zaltzman. The group talked monitization, if Listeners are plateauing, Challenges and opportunities and What a podcast reboot looks like.

Then it was back to the Blogger lounge as Shaquille O’Neil stopped by. He talked about how he got on Twitter and how he remembers when SXSW was music only. A pretty good discussion on his takes on social media.

I went down to the Expo to see what was new. A lot of the same from last year but I did get to meet Matthew Lesko – the government grant guy. I interviewed two people that were not even in Austin TX. Beam is the company and they make moving personal assistants.

FInally I took a walk around 6th street to catch some of the night life SXSW offers.
