In this podcast episode I got to talk with Claire McHugh, who co-founded Axonista with Daragh Ward. If you haven’t heard of Axonista, you will, soon; they brought  TV3’s 3 Player to ROKU and the RTÉ News Now App to Windows Phone, and their ShowPal second-screen app is a wonderful implementation of 2nd screen functionality for Ireland’s leading independent TV station. We chatted about how Claire’s early work with WAP, what Twitter means for second-screen, how event television and social media co-exist and, a little philosophy.

Andy O'Donoghue talks about technology, some say, too much.

Video: Sabrina Cortugno, on animation: script or pictures first?

I really wanted to chat to Sabrina for the Podcast, not so much about Kickstarter but about Sabrina’s thoughts on animation. She attended CalArts and honed her craft at Gobelin in Paris so I was curious what she’d found – story or pictures, what’s first in making animation?

The  most charming Kickstarter I’ve backes is Sabrina Cortugno’s Bleeding Heart project. Sabrina is a storyboard artist on Gravity Falls and her Bleeding Heart project was a step away from animation and in to the world comic art.

Bleeding Heart was 28-page about a young man named Henry – a scientist-in-

Coupled with great rewards it was an unstoppable project, soaring past 100% funding in a day, and going on to raise $23,000 from almost a thousand backers.

Earlier this year I met Linda Franco, the CEO and co-founder of Machina Wearable Technology.

Machina were described once in Wired as making ‘the most beautiful wearable tech in the world’ and I’d been curious for some time about the people behind a company that was apparently scorchingly innovative, so I was thrilled when Úll 2014 announced that Linda would be a key-note speaker and panelist for the 3-day conference. So, I packed my bag and phoned our director on TV3’s The Gadget Buzz and we headed for the medieval city of Kilkenny, a beautiful, charming city of around 20,000 people.

And the first thing I asked Linda about? What’s it like being a world renowned start-up in Mexico City, a city of 20 Million people.
