SXSW 2014: Edu, Music, and Pi Day
Mar 17 2014
This is the first time in several years that I did not attend any SXSW interactive events…not a single one. I don’t feel that I missed out on anything other than not seeing some folks in person who I usually “see” online. Instead I attended SXSWedu and finagled a wristband for SXSW music, and I had a great time.
I was at SXSWedu for my company and it felt to me like the early days of SXSW interactive. There is so much going on in the world of ed tech. I learned a lot and we all met some great potential partners. A friend invited me to go with her to SXSW music, and I heard some really great bands including Kelly Willis & Bruce Robison, Suzanne Vega, David & Olivia, Boy & Bear, and I even got to watch a hip hop contest. I saw a few performances by amateurs who made me feel better about my two songs that I’m about to release via DistroKid (after I get an album cover created & designed). I will do a blog post soon linking to the places where you can find my songs.
My kids are helping me create a YouTube video of images. We are going to draft up a contract so they get some experience with a business negotiations (i.e., mom decides what they get paid), they get experience creating something and putting it on YouTube, and I get
a good deal a beautiful video created by my kids.
Well, I don’t have anything else I want to write, so I’m leaving you with some photos and images of Pi Day that happened on 3/14/14. One is a photo in downtown Austin at SXSW where planes where creating Pi in the Sky and the other was an image that showed up somewhere in one of my email accounts.
