Scion Music(Less) Conference
I was invited out to the Scion Music(Less) Conference in LA to sit on a panel to discuss Truth in Social Media along with Journalists Simon Dumenco and Steven Leckart. The conference was for the American indie music scene and was focused on educating bands, artists, producers, etc about online retail, promotion and other industry related topics.
Since July 2012
The Fakers App was a side project to StatusPeople (see below). It allows users to check how many fake followers they have on Twitter. It has generated over 300,000 sign ups and been featured in the New York Times, Mashable, The Daily Mail, FastCompany, The Telegraph, The Guardian and a number of other publications. It has led me to appear on CNN and BBC Radio 4 to discuss spam and fake followers on Twitter and Social Media.

Given I'm often in the naughty corner with @anna8988 I decided to build an HTML5 Canvas tool that helps women forgive their boyfriends in a more efficient and speedy manner... It seemed to work quite well for me so if you're in a bind try it yourself...
