Shaq has been pushing the video service Tout for a couple of years now and despite some viral gold put out by Shaq, the service hasn’t caught fire the way photo apps like Instagram or Pinterest have. Actually, no video sharing service has been able to dominate or catch fire yet so the doors are still open for that technology and Shaq was pushing that technology as well as checking out others at the SXSW Interactive trade show this weekend.
Shaq is often credited as the first “social media athlete” and an early adapter of tech trends so it will be interesting to see what toys he leaves and/or invests with.
