Now Hear This: SXSW Shingerview With David Noël, VP of Community, Soundcloud

The latest and hottest start-ups aren't coming from Silicon Valley anymore. While New York, Kansas City, and Austin are heating up here in the U.S., Berlin, Stockholm and London are already on fire. So I guess I shouldn't have been surprised that my accent wasn't the only one in town.

David Noël is the VP of Community at Soundcloud, which is based in Berlin and where I've been sharing my music for the past two years. And seeing as they just won the SXSW Interactive award for community, he must be doing a pretty good job. Here he talks with me about creative collaboration and how Soundcloud is enabling it between artists and fans.
