Red Couch Interview: Betsy Flanagan talks with MG Siegler of TechCrunch

Inside Flipboard / March 15, 2011

TechCrunch’s MG Siegler sat down on our Red Couch to talk with interviewer Betsy Flanagan about how he feels about news embargoes. (An embargo is a request from a company to reporters to hold the release of news until an agreed date and time.) TechCrunch has an outspoken stance on the subject, see this link.

Enjoy the conversation:


Flipboard is at the famous South By Southwest conference for music, film, and technology. We have brought our signature red couches and dropped them into the middle of all the action here in Austin, Texas. We’re moving around different locations at the show and hosting several interviews with interesting people on both sides of the couch.

If you see our Red Couch, (hint – there’s more than one here!) take a photo of it and tweet it out with #couchfan for a chance to win Flipboard swag and the Grand Prize, a shiny, new iPad 2!
