Flock CEO Shawn Hardin demos the social browser
The San Jose Mercury News spent a day at the TechCrunch40 conference talking to companies and getting demos of new products. This interview, with Flock CEO Shawn Hardin, is one of several videos we’re publishing from the conference. Tech-watchers will remember two years ago when Flock was being hailed as the next great Web browser, built on the Mozilla core and able to let users integrate publishing tools such as WordPress and Flickr from one place. The company released an early test version of the browser in the fall of 2005. Now the browser is nearly ready for its official full public release. Hardin, formerly head of Yahoo’s Youth, Health & Games, gave us a look at the newest version of what he calls the world’s only “social browser,” which now integrates Facebook and other services.
