Nerd Stalker #2 Vertigo CEO Scott Stanfield

PART 1 PART 2 This two part interview took place at Microsoft in San Francisco Bay Area .Net users group meeting. Vertigo CEO Scott Stanfield gave yet another awesome demo of what his development company has done with Silverlight. We talk about the amazing Hard Rock deep zoom project, photo display application slide.show , video application video.show , the state of rich internet application development, advertising, and more. I keep a close eye on Vertigo as I believe they are on the front lines of innovative web development, I would suggest you do the same.

Widget company interviews part 4 Clearspring

I speak with Mike Harkey (Dirctor of Business Development) from Clearspring. We talk widgets, advertising, analytics and sharing. Clearspring looked to be a candidate for a large company type solution for certain type of marketing/advertising campaigns.

Widget company interviews part 3 DISQUS

Despite initially butchering the name "Disqus" pronounced "discuss" co-founder/ceo Daniel Ha was kind enough to speak with the Nerd Stalker crew. Daniels tells us what Disqus is, what happened during a brief down time and where this company is going. I expect this "widget" to do quite well.

Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

“From Oscar-wining director Alex Gibney and producer Graydon Carter comes a probing look into the uncanny life of national treasure and gonzo journalism inventor Dr. Hunter S. Thompson. A fast moving, wildly entertaining documentary with an iconic soundtrack, the film addresses the major touchstones in Thompson’s life-his intense and ill fated relationship with the Hell’s Angels, his near-successful bid for the office of sheriff in Aspen in 1970, the notorious story behind the landmark Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, his deep involvement in Senator George McGovern’s 1972 presidential campaign, and much more. Narrated by Johnny Depp.”
