Is Shaq the Coolest Man Alive?
If you didn't know already, I'm a huge NBA fan and I'm an even bigger fan of ex-NBA superstar Shaquille O'Neal. For those who are not familiar with the man mountain that is Shaq, he had an incredible basketball career winning championships and personal accolades, but he is equally known for his larger than life personality. He is now a pundit for TNT, analysing basketball games.
However, this year he attended SXSW as a keynote speaker, and we got to learn a little more about what gets the basketball legend excited. He met up with Brian Solis of briansolis.com (one of our favourite social media blogs) - to chat about his involvement in technology and start-ups. Little did we know that he is a self confessed geek who helps start ups get off the ground.
He has created a new platform called 'Pitch Shaq' - encouraging entrepreneurs to start their own businesses. Check out the interview with Brian below.
