Startup cities/Austin chat with @garyvee and @kevinrose

Some of the hippest peeps on the net have been playing with Seesmic recently. Yesterday Gary Vaynerchuck tweeted that him and kevinrose where on there chatting it up. So, I hopped over and asked a couple questions.

Here’s the deal:

(Juan Sequeda asked the city ranking question to PG at StartupSchool and was telling me about it over bagels last week.)

(oh yeah. facial hair. … like I said in my first video up there – boulder, techstars, gwen bell, andrew hyde… kickin some ass. I’ve been to Boulder once (in CO I always go to Telluride with fam) but I’m wanna come see yall soon. …totally agree on the valley talk. …I also know! Austin is a kick ass city and I’m trying to develop this sucker – that’s why we got Startup District rollin. Since southby I gave myself 1 year to see what we could turn this place into, and it’s coming along nicely.)

(sorry ’bout the sound on this one)

Gary In Austin! Tuesday, June 3rd – Austin, TX

  • 1:00 PM–Book Signing at Grape Vine Market, 7938 Great Northern Boulevard, Austin, TX 78757

These guys are a blast. Here’s a garyvee with a Radar sticker. heh

Gray is a mofo that knows how to love his fans and customers. I love how it just flows outta the guy — every time he’s talking it’s just like “Thank you sooo much for your question”, “Awesome t shirt”, “I love your burp”, whatever.. he makes ya feel good. Everyone can take a lesson. Kevin was kick ass at this too. Just more to the point – “what your question? BAM I’m gonna tell you the answer; and it’s a good one.”

  1. Little more content in the post would be nice, but I like that you are posting some vid. The Austin response was pretty lame, but honest at the same time. Maybe you can show them around a little when they come back:P

  2. thanks for the comment Joseph. more content next time – will try. just trying to post more often – so sometimes i have to make them short. love that you are telling me what you want though. thanks..

  3. Thanks for sharing! Cool stuff. Good to see those guys really engaging w/ the a large audience. As always, a big fan of what you guys are doing with Startup District. Wonder if Austin can find its own niche – i mean not web ver.sion – you know?

    People are highlighting semantic as something to watch out for in the near future (albeit that has been the discussion for years) BUT -what if semantic/AI etc becomes Austin’s startup of choice?

    Heading to see gary on Tuesday? Also, sad – i would have loved to ask a question! too bad i was driving to BFE when i saw the tweet.

  4. thanks for the kind words KG (can i call you KG?)

    haha.. yeah BFE indeed. hope yall had a good time. ropeswing?

    i do like the idea of austin being a semantic hub – really like that idea actually. that or cloud computing (rackspace)

  9. Seesmic is a video blogging web application in alpha stage being developed by French entrepreneur Loic Le Meur[1] to make video uploading easier for those using webcams.[2] Seesmic made its debut at the Demo tech conference where it was called the “Twitter of video”, however conversations will not take place in real time.[3] The service has 20,000 users to date and 70,000 viewers per month.

  10. Love to follow conversations such as this one. I get to learn more about them and their ways of socializing. Looking forward to get to socialize with like-minded people like you guys.
