The NeverEnding SXSW

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

It seems as though we’ve only just recovered fully from the inaugural SXSW V2V in Las Vegas and we realize that SXSW Eco is next week! We’ve heard countless people describe reconnecting with old friends at the annual conference and festival in March as a high school reunion of sorts. To be truthful, living in the Austin area, there are people I only see at SXSW, but it wouldn’t be Southby without them there.

Some final thoughts on V2V, it was one of the best SXSW experiences we’ve ever had, most memorable is the the edification we received on all things BitCoin on the bus ride to an evening event. As we’ve always said the best networking doesn’t happen at parties, it happens in hallways or in places where you least expect it.

With SXSW Eco right around the corner, we’ll be gearing up with some recommendations on the panels and keynotes that jump off the page at us, along with our daily updates duriing the Conference on best bets for the day.
