Going Live at SXSW with Techzulu

So, one of the many adventures I got up to in Austin was co-hosting the recap show from Chris Heuer’s Social Media Clubhouse with Amanda Coolong and Techzulu.

Scottish Television at South by Southwest

Carrying on the links to the media I worked on at SXSW this year is the series of interviews and profiles I did for STV at the Austin festival. It seemed that everyone joked that they had found the secret to getting STV to pay attention (fly to Texas), but they were all doing the [...]

It’s the end of the challenge – did I manage to get a smartphone, sim card, texts, data, minutes, peripherals and third party apps for under $250? And what questions were you all asking? It’s time to find out, along with auditioning a potential new co-host.
