SXSW 2015 Quotes

22, Mar 2015

I love learning, and I feel so lucky to be able to immerse myself in it for 5 days at SXSW Interactive. Overall, I left with my brain buzzing and awake, which is exactly what I was hoping to accomplish. Yes, the tech part is just as full of people hoping to land a big […]

SXSW 2015 Day 5

21, Mar 2015

Apparently I had to take a bit of a break to work up the energy to blog the last day of SXSW, but I am a completist so no fear, fellow completists. Day 5 had downtown Austin threatening rain but mostly just a lot of humidity. The routine is to park, walk across the river, […]

SXSW 2015 Day 4

SXSW 2015 Day 1

14, Mar 2015

It was a good, chill day. There are a LOT of people here. They have started marking certain panels as “popular” so you at least know you have to get somewhere really early to get a seat. I started off with “Simple Ways to Massively Increase Your Content” with a social media manager for Oracle […]
