Johnny Jet

Episode 1171

Johnny is still in Austin for South by Southwest, and his first app this week is called Meerkat, the live social video app that launched at SouthBy which Johnny thinks is awesome. It allows you to live stream whatever you're doing and plug it on twitter. Leo says that there have been others that have done this, like Qik, but Meerkat is really easy because people follow you via Twitter and they can comment while you're talking. It's a great way to publicize events. You can even create your own mobile TV network by Meerkating.

Leo wanted to share his Super Bowl experience and frankly, he thinks he got ripped off. The packagers buy out all the hotels and so he had to go with a packager who gouged them severely. He wishes he had gone with AirBnB or rented an apartment like Johnny recommended. Or CouchSurfing.com.
