For this installment of our Meet the Blogger series, we talked with JJ Hammond from STLTechTalk.com.
Give a brief description of who you are and what you do.
My name is JJ Hammond and I am an evangelist for STL Tech Talk LLC. I help promote the content generation for STL TECH TALK across the Web. I am also the co-host of the STL Tech Talk Podcast, The Tech Informist and CodeCast by STL Tech Talk.
Why did you start blogging?
I started working with Kevin and writing for STL TECH TALK about two years. Blogging is a great way to put concise and targeted thoughts out to the masses on what I am passionate about – technology!
How has STLTechTalk.com changed in the last two years?
STL TECH TALK has evolved to be a media machine and content generation is key to what we do. We’ve also launched The Tech Informist, which is a global brand that focuses on informing the public on all things tech related. The Tech Informist is a website, show and the product of perfecting what we did on the STL TECH TALK.
What’s your favorite thing about being a blogger?
My favorite part about being a blogger is meeting new people and getting positive feedback.
So far, what has been your favorite Verizon device/accessory that you’ve reviewed and why?
Where do you predict technology will be in 10 years from now?
In 10 years from now, I think there will be less concern for the Operating System on a “Device” and more Internet of Things where a person’s unique ID follows each person to where they are.
If you could interview one person or team for the STLTechTalk.com weekly podcast, who would it be and why?
I would love to interview the Verizon research and development department. Why? To see what they are working on. I love learning about new tech things, even if those things are geeky back end services.
What’s your one “can’t live without” app?
Music. I can’t live without a music app.
What’s your favorite part about living in St. Louis?
I love living in St. Louis because of its low cost of living with all of the benefits of high cost of living. In St. Louis, we have access to a lot of great co-working spaces. We also have a lot of college campuses that are focused on the future of this area in positive ways.
