I’ll be co-hosting a new show on BBC America called Gizmodo: The Gadget Testers, coming March 18th! Joel Johnson, Greg Foot, OJ Borg and I will be putting tech to the extremes. Please watch on March 18th at 10:20pm after the season finale of Top Gear! If enough people watch, we’ll get to make more episodes for you.

Wow, so I am just… like, really bad at blogging regularly. Anyhow. Launched a new show this week! It’s called Fact or Fictional, and each week we’ll be looking at your (and I do mean your) favorite technology from TV shows, movies, video games, comic books, etc, and finding out from the experts if it’s possible.
Our first episode (more of a teaser, since we’re still getting everything together production-wise) is about the Ducati Sport 1000 from TRON: Legacy. Yeah, it’s not the light cycle, but hopefully we’ll get to that one at some point!
We’re taking suggestions from the audience for future episodes, so let me know what you want to see!
I’ve begun advising for a company called Chic CEO, which is a fantastic resource for female entrepreneurs. Women can go to the website to learn how to get their businesses started for free (with premium content as well). From learning how to write up a business plan, filing for an EIN, or getting the right tax forms filled out, it’s all there.
Out of the several companies I work with on a advisory level, this is the only one with a strong female presence. I think it’s hugely important to give women with big ideas the know-how and resources to make them a reality.
Aside from the female POV, another reason I wanted to work with them is because the information is concrete, easy-to-understand and easy-to-implement. The site is geared towards women, but it’s filled with great advice that anyone could use.
They’ve also been written up in Forbes twice recently, in their Top 10 Entrepreneurial Websites For Women and The 10 Best Websites for Millennial Women, and they also regularly host events in the San Diego and NYC area.
I think we’ll be doing some fun stuff at SXSW this year as well, so stay tuned!
