All while studying at New York University, Alana Taylor has become a social media sensation and technology blogger by sharing her life and views on technology through Twitter and UStream, attracting thousands of followers.

Her talent and popularity were quickly noticed by Mashable which, in April, nabbed this student-cum-blogger to host Mashable Conversations, video interviews with movers and shakers of the Web 2.0 world.

Earlier this year, when Alana had just started out as Mashable’s newly minted conversationalist, we caught up with her to discuss Mashable Conversations, technology and her rise to internet stardom.

College coeds looking for a career in new media should take note.
