I Could Dance With You Till The Cows Come Home

Monday, February 23rd, 2015

SXSW has announced this year’s comedy line-up for the fun in March. The full repertoire of performers can be found on the website, with a mix of stand up shows, full shows, recordings, and live tapings.

Have aloof through the list at the SXSW website, with a lot of new and upcoming names (just like SXSW Music) but with the occasional big hitter in the mix (including Beth Stelling, W Kamau Bell, Glen Wool, and Katie Dippold all catching my eye.

As well as the usual gigs and podcast recordings we’ve seen in previous years, the SXSW team are recurring two love comedy specials  for subsequent broadcast. These will both take place at The North Door on Sunday March 15th.

With just over three weeks to go until SXSW kicks off once more, it’s time for the regular SXSW Baby! podcast to start up again. This year we’re going to build up to SXSW through a series of ‘Understanding SXSW’ podcasts. Today’s introductory podcast will explain it all (as well as introduce you to ‘Five Things That You Need To Pack In Your SXSW Bag‘), and as your trip to Austin gets closer we’ll have a ‘beginner’s level’ podcast, followed by ‘intermediate’ and then ‘expert’ tips and advice from the SXSW Baby! team.

Big Names Take To The Stage For SXSW Interactive Set Pieces

Monday, February 9th, 2015

More names front he SXSW Interactive team today as they pull out the big guns in the featured speakers line-up. The names include Eric Schmidt (Google’s Chairman), Biz Stone (Twtter, Square, and Odeo), The Winklevoss twins (currently working on Bitcoin exchanges), Gigi Sohn (Special Counsel at the FCC), Pete Cashmore (Mashable), and more.

I always find ‘the big names’ at SXSW to be interesting discussion points. Nobody gets to these exhausted positions without having some smart ideas and the ability to action those visions. But they will also be aware that they don’t want to slip up or make any public mistakes. So the talks announced today are going to be very high level, no doubt educational, but if you want your SXSW experience to be a little less… scripted… look for the smaller panels and catch the big set pieces on the streaming replays or hashtags.

The great thing is that SXSW can accommodate both extremes of talks, from the energetic and rowdy debates to the fireside chats – and both could make or break a career or two.
