Guy Kawasaki is positive, outgoing, easygoing, and full of lots of remarkably concrete, practical advice. Last night I interviewed Guy in front of a crowd of about 100-150 young entrepreneurs at General Assembly San Francisco, in an event cosponsored by Draper University and Young Professionals of San Francisco (YPOSF). I’m not exaggerating when I say this […]
The lovely folks at NBC Bay Area invited me back to Press:Here, Silicon Valley’s answer to “Meet the Press.” I was on the show on Sunday with Laura Mandaro and host Scott McGrew. We talked for about 8 minutes apiece with the founders of Munchery, Tripping.com, and HackerOne. Here are the three video segments! Tri […]
CCTV reporter Mark Niu interviewed me and included my somewhat skeptical take on Google’s new corporate structure — Alphabet Inc. — in his report this week. My hair is doing some weird thing but I think other than that I make some kind of sense. My take, in a nutshell: The new structure, so far, […]
I was on This Week in Tech — also known as TWiT — this past weekend, along with Harry McCracken, Patrick Norton, and Merlin Mann, plus host Leo LaPorte. It’s a two-hour live show, but the time went by fast: Leo keeps things moving along and everybody had something interesting to say about the week’s […]
I spoke with Josh Macht (Group Publisher, Harvard Business Review) on an episode of Hubspot’s podcast The Growth Show to talk about how our publications have been able to survive — and thrive — in the digital age. It’s an interesting 30-minute conversation about how digital publications can grow, attract the right audiences, and monetize. Some of […]
Last summer, Ben Kaplan posted an interview with me about how PR folks can get my attention. I’ve been pointing people to this interview time and again, because it is a helpful summary of how my day really works. Here’s the start of the transcript. Read the whole thing, or give it a listen, on PRHacker.com. […]
I was on NBC Bay Area’s Sunday show “Press Here” a few weeks ago. This is a really fun show to do: It’s like a local version of “Meet the Press,” hosted by Scott McGrew. They bring in a couple local journalists and do a few short segments where we interview entrepreneurs about what they’re […]
Wearables will be everywhere at CES, I said last week on the eve of the big gadget show. “Everyone wants to be the next Apple watch,” I told Fox Business, “but unfortunately we’re going to have to wait for the Apple Watch to come out.” And as everyone knows, Apple doesn’t do CES. I also […]
I was on “Opening Bell” with Maria Bartiromo on Wednesday morning, shortly before Amazon announced its Kindle Fire smartphone. Here’s what I had to say. I got some of it right! Watch the latest video at video.foxbusiness.com
I spent some time at the studios of KRON-4 TV here in San Francisco on Friday evening, chatting with Catherine Heenan about that day’s launch of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C and answering reader questions. Thanks to Gabe Slate for inviting me on!
This story, from last week, appeared earlier on VentureBeat and on LinkedIn Today, where it’s generated a ton of commentary. I also did a video on the topic with KRON-4 TV, embedded here. You can only put so many dents in the universe. This week, Apple unveiled a respectable upgrade of its iPhone line. So […]
KGO’s Jonathan Bloom came by VentureBeat’s office yesterday to interview me about Yahoo’s new logo. Here’s his video! And here’s Jonathan’s writeup on the new logo, including some great man-on-the-street interviews and a classic reaction from the head of the Academy of Art’s design school. It’s a good story.
