We are heading to LA for our first PandoMonthly of the year in a few weeks, and our guest is one of my favorite people to grab a drink or talk about stocks with: Howard Lindzon.
Lindzon is one of those rare people who just loves everything about finance and trading and Wall Street, but also loves technology and thinks it should disrupt the shit out of it. We're gonna talk about crowd funding, buying stocks over Twitter, Bitcoin, and every other disruption that freaks traditional finance and the SEC out.
He has bonafide financial chops but has always loved poking fun at that world too. His previous company was Wallstrip, which faded from the zeitgeist after it was sold to CBS and the network poached its star Lindsay Campbell.
Lindzon started StockTwits when he quickly saw Twitter’s power for anything that relied on real time public communication long before hashtags were all over the networks. Financial trading can’t exactly be time-shifted. It's become a market-moving force and recently announced new funding and a new CEO.
He's weird, irreverent, unafraid to piss people off, and so quick witted sometimes I laugh five minutes too late. In other words, a perfect PandoMonthly guest.
