Interviews, Video Reviews, Web 2.0, Websites

Last night I had the privilege of speaking to Jason Calacanis, fresh off the plane from the US, on his first trip to the UK. Here to attend the NMK Forum (from which I’m liveblogging from as we speak), he had some exciting news to announce the next day, of which we’ve since learnt is Mahalo’s Greenhouse. Take a look at the video to hear him talk about his online ‘rivals’ such as Google and (plus his thoughs on the horrible ‘Information Revolution’ campaign), spill the beans on his feelings towards Nick Denton of Gawker Media, and most importantly, the exciting announcement of’s Greenhouse, and how it can earn you money.

Needless to say, I was dead-excited meeting him, as he’s one of my online heroes, and he had some very interesting points to make about the way the online world is changing. I definitely have a tech-crush on this man (but don’t worry Bill Gates, you’re still my number one love!)
