Chris Pirillo on Lockergnome, Gnomedex, Seattle Tech Scene and Monetizing Pirillo

You can listen to my conversation with Chris by hitting the orange play button above, or by downloading it from iTunes or through RSS.

At one of the CES 2013 press shows, I happened across Chris Pirillo, the one-man tech media whirlwind doing what he does best: talking to someone about tech and capturing it on video for his quarter million Youtube fans, not to mention his many other subscribers at Google+, Twitter and elsewhere.

I've long been aware of Chris Pirillo; if you're in the technology industry or are a tech enthusiast, it's almost impossible not to be. For the last two decades he's been around in some form or another, starting in the mid-90s with one of the first big technology newsletters, which morphed into Lockergnome, Gnomedex, TechTV, and most recently hrough his daily vlogs on YouTube.

After seeing him in action, I thought it'd be good to catch up with him about what he's doing, how he got to where he is and how he makes a business of all his various online activities. We also talked about the origins of Lockergnome and Gnomedex, about his time as a host on TechTV, his 24//7 live-streaming on u-stream, his plans for a new conference about vlogging, and the Seattle tech scene (and how it compares to Silicon Valley).  

So Listen!
