SXSW on Calacanis: He’s kinda a dick, but he’s awesome
During the intro session for newbies, someone mentioned how they had tricked Jason Calacanis into taking a pic of them while Jason would think he was the celeb. It was a funny story and a great idea for meeting celebs :) – Instead of sucking up to them, go up to them and ask them to take a pic of you without them knowing you know who they are.
Anyway, Nick Douglas from Valleywag started discussing Jason so I videotaped it. I only caught the last 30 seconds but it was the juicy part anyway. Nick says, "Jason is kind of a dick sometimes, but he's awesome."
Side note, I will do my best to get more video and audio of the event where I can. They have some strict restrictions on audio/video so I may have to call in covert operations. Where is Jack Bauer when you need him?!!?
