An amazing week at Sports Geek working on #SuperAwesomeMicroProjectWhat a busy week it has been at Sports Geek as we have been working hard on a secret project that has taken the internet by storm the last few days.  We have been a patron of the Super Awesome Micro Project over the past 80 weeks, helping a teenage genius Raul Oaida and Melbourne start up guru Steve Sammartino deliver a full sized Lego car to the internet.  On this episode I interview Steve about the project on Harf Time just 2 hours after we launched the video and then catch up with microDomination author Trevor Young about how PR & media has picked up the story as it goes viral.

On this podcast you’ll find out about:

  • How Super Awesome Micro Project got started
  • Challenges when creating content to go viral
  • How the lego car actually works
  • How we pushed the story our via social media
  • Excitement of watching analytics and social chatter around the project
  • What it is like to be on the inside when your content takes off
