    WiredUK recently mapped the UK’s technology startups based around London’s answer to Silicon Valley: Old Street’s ‘Silicon Roundabout’.

    Sponsored by Kodak and The Next Web, Techfluff.tv decided to delve a little deeper into London’s startup scene and video interview ten of these companies.

    This week we meet one of the most successful web companies to come out of the Old Street area, Last.fm. I interviewed Matt Ogle, Head of Product at Last.fm. Matt talks about Last.fm’s worldwide influence and management, how Last.fm helps and connects artists and fans and how it makes money.

    The Silicon Roundabout series is filmed on a Kodak Zi8. You can watch previous episodes here. Next week will be an interview with WhoSampled.com.
