You may recall how, at last year’s Web Summit, Laura Gaynor wasn’t allowed to interview skateboarder Tony Hawk but she was allowed challenge him to a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors.


Laura writes:

This year they let me talk to Tony Hawk! Here he is answering the question: will he skate into his 80’s? This video also features several tech guys and Jonathan McCrea (Newstalk, TV3, RTÉ) skateboarding! Would love if you’d check it out and let me know what you think.

Fair Play in fairness

As part of the SpunOut media fund we made a video about job interviews. We’re hoping that it’s informative and/or vaguely entertaining for the potential audience of 382,000 people on the live register. We’d love if you’d check it out and feel free to add your own tips!
