Kara Visits Google's I/O: The Attack of the Android Phones and Geek Social Dudes Too!

This is BoomTown’s chosen snarky path!

We talked a lot about privacy–the big hot-button issue, of course, which is why we really should have had a Facebook geek dude on the panel too–in social networking, mobile and devices.

And here’s my video from I/O, including interviews with some of those geek dudes:
