BlogWorld Expo Radio Interviews PimpMyNews at SXSW


[Listen to the Interview]

We just returned from the SXSW Interactive conference last night. During our three days at the show, we reconnected with old friends, met many new ones, and brushed up on emerging trends in tech and social media.



For me, the highlight of the show was hanging out in the Techset blogger lounge and sharing stories with other entrepreneurs and bloggers, and talking with PimpMyNews users.Gracious hosts, Brian Solis, who pens the popular PR 2.0 and blogs, Stephanie Agresta, and the Windows Mobile team treated everyone like family, regardless of your Google Page Rank.


While in the Techset lounge, I had the opportunity to be interviewed by Blogworld Expo Radio’s Jim Turner. To listen to the interview, click here.

We also shared the news about the new PimpMyNews iPhone application with many other bloggers and social media folks, including Mark “Rizzn” Hopkins, Derek Overbey of 100 Interviews, Jason Falls, Derek Wilmot and many others.
