You probably know Dan Ilic best from TV's Hungry Beast. He's a comedian, filmmaker and -- according to his website -- rabble-rouser; at least unofficially. But did you know he’s had a long association with tech? From Amstrads and working for an Apple reseller to crashing parties in America – we check in on Dan’s light bulb moment.
Gizmodo is traversing the interwebs to chat with geeky celebrities who we’ve always wanted to meet -- for this new series sponsored by developer hub, La La Ninja.
I've got a lot of respect for Dan's position on curiosity; there's many innovations and ideas we simply wouldn't have today without somebody, somewhere throwing a little caution to the wind and just going for it. I'm also a little jealous of how effortlessly funny he is in person; I wish I could do that.
