SXSW 2014 in Pictures

This was my SXSW. I had a lot of fun this year meeting new people and creating new interviews. Of course, this was the year of the selfie for me – Since selfies are suppose to be therapeutic. I got a lot of them with some great superstars My Celebrity SXSW Watch It all started at the Roku streaming lounge when I met one of my all-time favorite wrestlers Sgt. Slaughter. He was getting ready to talk about how the WWE was proud to be on Roku, and was gracious to be a part of the photo as I had to run...

Full Interview: Mark Zuckerberg, Michael Arrington

While at TechCrunch Disrupt, I got the opportunity to watch the fireside chat with founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and CrunchFund founder Michael Arrington. This is the first time Zuckerberg has spoken since Facebook went public (so when Facebook went public, Facebook went private). I have taken a few key moments out of the video for you. In Hindsight Would You Do Anything? We are going to do things we think to build value over the longterm. Over the next 3-5 years the biggest question on everyone’s minds is how well we do on mobile. We’ve been in this quiet...

Photos from TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2012

This week was a long one, but a lot of fun. I met many companies that have some interesting startups. A good mix of videos along with learning more about being a startup or investor. I got to see Kevin Rose, Mark Zuckerberg, Biz Stone and Evan Williams speak (amongst others). I saw old friends and met new ones. It’s been a fun week. I tried to take photos every chance I could. Here is the photoroll of my trip to TCDisrupt.

My 1 Share of Facebook Stock Came Today

Yes, last week, I bought 1 share of Facebook stock. The replica stock came in the mail today. I was pretty happy with the purchase, and I can say I was a first gen Facebook stock buyer. It’s all about novelty, but if this stock does well, novelty can turn to profit. Why I bought 1 share of Facebook Like I said on Geek Smack! last week – I bought it for novelty. I was too young to purchase Apple or Microsoft stock when they issued their IPO. I didn’t buy Yahoo! stock (thank god!) or Google stock when they...

Drawing Lines in the Sand: Google+ is Not Facebook. At Least Not Just YET…

There are a lot of people that snapped up the Google+ invite when they had the chance. It’s right now mostly made up of Tech-savvy and Social Mediates.  Since it’s introduction last week, there has been a lot of Buzz about it (no, not Google Buzz) – Some have even made the statement that they are moving to Google+ from Facebook. That may not be the best move right now and we’ll talk about why. The Google+ Project Google+ was created to compete with Facebook. Who are you and what are you doing with audio, pictures and video. Google+ is (right...

Facebook’s Email Killer that’s Not an Email Killer

Today, Mark Zuckerberg announced an expansion of their messaging service. It’s not here to replace email, but to enhance it. However, with opportunity that no one will get any more spam and usability will be easier simply because it’s within Facebook, would you really want to keep your other email account? I personally have more than one email address. That is part of my role. I figure that this will just be another extension to mail collection. Great. The more functionality that gets added, the more people will use it. If there are no privacy issues attached, then expect the masses to...

Facebook Founder Fazed at All Things D

MarketWatch, a website run by the Wall Street Journal, reports on an interview of Mark Zuckerberg at the All Things D Conference. I’ve not heard of the All Things D Conference, but I know that, if the Wall Street Journal is covering it in any way, it must have been full of movers and shakers moving and shaking. Mr. Zuckerberg did more shaking than moving. From the story: The interview was rich in irony. For the CEO of a company that wants everyone to share information, Zuckerberg clearly did not like talking about himself in front of some of the...

Facebook and the Meaning of “the Default Is Social”

Facebook’s privacy practices continue to be in the news. The BBC reports that Mark Zuckerberg has promised to simply the privacy controls. Meanwhile, Aditya Chakrabortty, writing in the Guardian, reminds us of why this stuff is important by recalling this story: In summer 2006, AOL did something unprecedented in the history of the internet: it published a database showing what 658,000 members had searched for over three months. A mammoth exercise, this was also one of the most uncynical ever undertaken by a billion-dollar company – AOL shared the information for free, in the hope it would help researchers understand...
