This is the PopSnap TV roundup blog for Today’s episode. Happy MLK day everyone!
This is what the video is all about and who it features in no particular order:
Natali Del Conte arrived in NYC to stay and work for Cnet TV. She closes today’s PopSnap show with a cute Britney Spears smile and talks about Kongregate, her favorite startup that allows you to play free games online.
Eve Phillips talks about her stealthy startup that will launch this week (probably on TechCrunch). She describes Chirp Interactive as a screen saver, called the chirp screen, that allows you to know what your friends are doing all the time. It pulls in data from all your social networking sites and displays them for you on your screen saver. It can pull in pictures, statuses, updates, and all the live content you can think of.
It was neat to meet Manuel Monroy of iPling, a social network around the iPhone, because I first heard about Manuel last week when he set up a scavenger hunt game at MacWorld where participants could win prizes, like an iPod touch, by searching for them with tags via SMS on their iPhones.
Rachel Sterne from Ground Report, a news site that shares revenues with it’s reporters was there video blogging for Mogulus. At the top right corner of this post is Max Hoat, the Mogulus CEO, interviewing me at the after party. If you click on the image you will see that I am wearing a tiara. Ha!
Both Erick Schonfeld and I were surprised iMedix won best new Startup. It makes sense because they are out of Israel and not networked into the Silicon Valley competitive scene. When Dan Farber Interviewed Erik on stage he asked him the first question. He asked Erick what he’s most surprised about and Erik almost gave away that iMedix won before their award had been given out.
I had a nice chat with Kevin Rose and Mark Zuckerberg who won Best user-generated content site. Both Kevin and Mark Zuckerberg stuck around for the glamor shots by Zivity. Above the video there is a picture of Kevin Rose.
Cyan Banister gives her point of view about the negative feedback from the press regarding her provocative pictures on Zivity. She say’s the press can say what they want because negative press does not bother her.
MC Hammer was so nice to do the interview with me twice. The first time we tried recording and it didn’t go through. The second time was a charm. He’s letting everyone know about DanceJam– a great way to waste time. Mike Arrington is one of the investors and say’s MC Hammer is going to make a lot of money off of it. Joel B Sacks did the honor of recording the interview twice because the first time it didn’t record. Read more about the incident here.
That’s a wrap! Tune in tomorrow at 12pm WT for the next PopSnap show.
