One of the hottest new apps set to debut this week at SXSW, that annual intermingling of tenuous ideas and easy money, was LIVR, a social network exclusively for drunk people. Media and investors alike lined up to laud it. The only problem? As we first reported yesterday, LIVR was an elaborate hoax. Now it’s time to meet who was behind it.Team LIVR
As confirmed in a phone conversation with the two earlier today, LIVR is the brainchild of Brandon Bloch, a video producer who has worked with clients ranging from MTV to Ford to Renaissance Hotels, and Brandon Schmittling, an interaction designer who specialises in website creation. They have known each other since being a part of the same art/tech scene in DC several years ago, though both currently live in Brooklyn.
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is probably the defining salesman of our time. But in a sit-down with a small group of journalists yesterday that was ostensibly about new Kindle hardware, it became more clear than ever that his company’s success has come not from any individual product line, but from one impossibly ambitious strategy: Be everywhere, do everything. It’s insane. It’s working.
Yves “Jetman” Rossy’s exploits have been well-documented over the years. He’s crossed the English Channel, the Grand Canyon, and flown alongside a B-17 bomber with a jet-powered wing strapped to his back and nothing else. He’s crazy in the best way possible. We caught up with Yves yesterday to chat about what’s coming next for Jetman, his thoughts on Felix Baumgartner and what it’s like to fly with a wing strapped to your back.
It’s official, the torch has been passed: JJ Abrams is the next-generation Steven Spielberg, and now holds the key to the future of franchises like Star Trek and Star Wars, making him the new beacon of geek culture. We sat down with him to talk about Star Trek Into Darkness, Star Wars and the movies based on Portal and Half-Life.
