#SXSW Day 3 – the podcast

Its Day 3 into our South by Southwest adventures. Today, we recorded our podcast while standing in line at the temporary Apple store between East 6th St and Congress. We have shout outs for a bunch of people, including Lloyd Davis (@lloyddavies), Whitney Hess (@whitneyhess) and Marc Hemeon (@hemeon). We talk about what we got up to in our first day at the conference, with Jess heading off to Tim O’Reilly’s and WordPress sessions.


In the second part, we talk about the Ignite Austin talks with talks from (free) Ice Cream man, and we talk about what we’re looking forward to, including the panel sessions we’re attending (there’s a lean startup day on all day), meeting up with Jennie Lees (@jennielees) and the SXSWi opening party tonight.

As of this week, the honour of a dedicated app goes to Robert Scoble (@scobleizer), popular tech blogger and social media personality who is heavily followed around SXSW (South by Southwest). Dreamed up by witty Edinburgher Ewan Spence (@ewan), and innocently built by Tom Scott (@tomscott), the aptly named site www.IsScobleInThisRoom.com will answer the question every social media consultant is asking themselves around the conference…  (more…)

The sun is shining — we’re excited to be here of Day 1 in our South by Southwest adventures!

Give us a shout if you want us to watch out for anything.

Ever wondered how those client negotations might play out in a much less … negotiable space? Just found this video (even though it’s been around for a while). Hope you take it with a pinch of salt, but appreciate the funny-ness! (via Mirren Fischer and  Rachel Lane)

If you haven’t seen it already, I did a quick summary of Launch48 using the tweets that everyone sent. But if you don’t have time and just want to skip straight to the good bits, here’s my run down of the best tweets of the weekend… (other nominations welcome)

Funniest tweet: paulanthonywils: Feck me. Someone just pitched a flying car for #launch48

Most accurate description of Launch48: @markoscharatzas: If I was to pitch #launch48 in one sentence. “A box where you put a group of strangers inside it and shake it frenzy for 48 hours”

Best Feature Requestjarofgreen: Does @zzzappa_app have a snooze button? #launch48

Worst punJessInScotland: Hmmm is this my solemate!?!? #launch48(#seemyjeans)http://yfrog.com/e8hprij

Best benefit of an app: @glennbuchan Run2see keeps you safe from neds and bears!#launch48

Most insightful tweet: Tech_Literate: Really good talented people aren’t looking for jobs – have to meet them through contacts and persuade them – Simon Montford #launch48

Biggest statement tweet: markoscharatzas: After #launch48 demo people said to me “great acting”,”awesome monologue”,”amazing show”.It was neither scripted nor acting but a statement.
