In a series of cutaways from interviews recorded at the Dublin Web Summit and the GAME conference in recent months, tech entrepreneurs and industry visionaries tell all they want for Christmas.

Our video includes a number of start-ups and industry leaders who we met at recent pivotal events in Dublin’s tech calendar including the Web Summit and GAME who we simply asked at the end of interviews to complete the sentence “All I want for Christmas is …”

The video includes AOL’s digital prophet David Shing, comedian Baratunde Thurston, Russian tech start-up supremo Olga Steidl from Talkbits, one of Ireland’s foremost games entrepreneurs Stephen Collins from Swrve, Silicon Valley blogger Robert Scoble, Mozilla founder Mitchell Baker, CoderDojo co-founder James Whelton, Stripe’s Patrick Collison and Spark of Genius winner SmartThings’ Alex Hawkinson, to name a few.

Have a great Christmas everyone!
