February 04, 2014 09:21 PM PST
Nerd Stalker interview Dennis List of Dutch startup Rocki, forgive the video quality we were at the mercy of hotel lobby wifi.
Rocki has created a very clever small and lightweight device that can jump on wireless networks and execute instructions via the web to play audio to any speaker it's connected to. Want to connect speakers all over your compound? Just connect more Rocki's and your all set. With Rocki you can have more than one phone controlling the music and create a music queue together, think dj battle. The silicon like cover comes in seven different colors and (as of this post) the device is sold for the very less than Sonos price of $49 (plus version) or $89 (play plus version). The device can fit in the palm of your hand and is extremely light.
Some future plans for Rocki are to solidify some partnerships with as many music providers as possible, think Spotify and the others. Also they say they will eventually release an open API for you developers out there. We love that Rocki has effectively commoditized wireless home theatre systems for the middle class.Artkick - Make All Your Screens A Museum Exhibit

We believe that those who cover technology and design should have a DEEP core understanding and passion for the space, not just some media experience
I started Nerd Stalker with a passion for all things tech, design and entrepreneurs with nothing more than a hand held video camera. I have been a systems administrator, front end developer, interaction designer, enterprise content management systems expert, search and web analytics point since the early 90's. I've worked with several bay area startups and enterprises and rode a few booms and busts. I wanted to present all of the amazing individuals that I am surrounded with in a no drama, irreverent, and real way. Nerd Stalker is now a collective of contributors who share this passion with a zeal. All of us do this for little to no money so that we can be part of something different, real, and special, will you join us by contributing a story or watching? We think the best of you will.
My deepest thanks,
I produce a show called Nerd Stalker, we believe in tech, startups, design and you.
