Innovative people descend on Austin

Posted by A. Smith on Sep-26-2009

Well, being that my goal here is to spill my thoughts on paper rather than sit and contemplate for hours on end while spontaneity slips away, today I will write about the first thing that came to mind: SXSW. For people who don’t know what these letters stand for, I am referencing South by Southwest – or as I describe to people, “A huge conference/festival where innovative people with an passion for music, film, or interactive descend on Austin to connect with each other, new ideas, and the future.”

Well, I am going to be one of these fortunate people because I am attending SXSW in March 2010. I registered last week, booked a hotel, and made all of the arrangements necessary to make it happen. I am thrilled. Five days of compelling presentations from the brightest minds in emerging technology, scores of exciting networking events, and an unbeatable line up of special programs…I can only imagine the energy.

Now, if only Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos, makes another appearance!
