Jason Falls interviews Keenan Cahill – YouTube Sensation

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSSIf there is anyone that has felt the success of YouTube, it’s Keenan Cahill. This 17 year old has been lip-syncing songs for 4 years. His videos are seen by millions ever since he covered Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream”. Of course, growing up as Keenan hasn’t been the best. Suffering from a genetic disorder called “Mucopolysaccaridosis” (MPS-6), where his bones and cartilage did not get proper carbohydrates to grow. Still, his adversity gives him uniqueness, and since, YouTube stardom. Jason Falls sits down and talks with Keenan at the Overblog Booth at BlogWorld & New Media Expo in New York City. Keenan shares his wisdom of how to become a YouTube sensation. For instance – he mentions that he doesn’t refer to his audience as “Fans”. He addresses them as “guys”. Keenan is moving away from lip-syncing and planning to start singing originals. He...

10 Things I Learned From BlogWorld & New Media Expo New York 2012

The event is over. I am sitting in the Yotel, a very interesting hotel on the corner of 10th and 42nd street in Hell’s Kitchen part of Manhattan, New York. After 3 days of solid work, a ton of video taken, and a lot of new people I met, I have a few minutes to sit and reflect about this whole experience. It’s amazing how an event like this can really bring you closer to the people you hear about online. Because of this, I thought I would go through a top ten list of the things I learned not only being at the show, but also being a part of the show (even more than I was back in 2010). There were a lot of new faces.I polled each session I introduced, and in every session, 80% said this was their first BlogWorld & New Media Expo. It...

Geek Smack! 217: Leap Year Edition – Apple Going in a New Direction?

Subscribe: iTunes | RSS I took a week off because of health issues and also needed to get the CES videos out. The last 48 hours I unplugged myself as best I could just to try and get assemblence.

Help Kickstart Geekazine Special Media Feed’s Next Season

When I started going to conventions and other live events 4 years ago, I never expected having so much fun. Packing the bags with heavy equipment, hoping TSA won’t confiscate my luggage, waking up at 7 am and going to bed at 4 am does not sound like a fun job. Spending hours of time editing and posting video, while still trying to keep a literary head also doesn’t sound too much fun, either. But I do like to do it. It brings a level of accomplishment. Whether going out to BlogWorld and getting interviews from social media pros, or attending a local convention like Midwest Gaming Classic to get interviews and demonstrations. So here I am, four years later. Hundreds of videos alone – thousands in joint venture with others. Yet there are so many shows I haven’t covered yet. ComicCon in Los Angeles for 2012, SXSW...
