Dell Commercial At SXSW 2011 Starring Baratunde

This is the Dell Vostro V130. There was no tiger blood involved although it in the making of this video commercial. This is a great laptop that will make you stylish, professional and on point at work and in the boardroom.

SXSW Presentation: Becoming Real-Time Video Blogger in 2010 – Future15 Session

I'm still playing catch-up from SXSWi but I wanted to share the presentation from the Future15 Becoming Real-Time Video Blogger in 2010 session I presented at SXSW.
