Hello from SXSW 2011!
Posted by Belle in Digital on March 12, 2011

After two long flights, I'm finally at South by South West! For those who haven't heard of SXSW, it's an annual film/music/interactive conference conducted every march at Austin, Texas, since 1987. It's a really awesome event for web geeks. As a SXSW noob, I'm only here for the interactive conference this time. After picking up my badge this morning I attended a few interesting sessions and booths. The one I particularly enjoyed was "Your Meetings Suck and It's Your Fault" by Kevin Hoffman from Happy Cog

A few things I've learned so far:

  • Take things really slowly, be patient. The pace is much slower than in HK.
  • People in Austin are very friendly and love chatting up to strangers.
  • Everything is big here, it's hard to get around without a car.

Next, I'm going to find out where I can attend a BarCamp and visit Conjunctured, a co-working space.
