SXSW – 2013
Mar 8 2013
South by Southwest is upon us here again in Austin. There are tons of people here. They’ve expanded it to include an Education category, followed by Interactive (for the geeks), followed by Film and Music. There may be some other categories, but it’s gotten too big for most of us here to keep up with. I don’t have a badge this year. I attended a few parties last night including the annual High Tech Happy Hour at Molotov and the Start-Up Crawl. My perspective on the evolution of sxsw interactive is that it’s starting to get unwieldy. It’s a great time to catch up with many friends and business connections that I don’t normally get to see during the year, but there is so much noise that it’s easy to miss the substance.
Welcome to everyone who is here visiting our fine city! We have a lot of a lot of interesting entrepreneurial activity going on here and a very open/collaborative community. I hope the new, viable start-ups get lucky, make some great connections, and generate some good buzz that will sustain their businesses for another year.
