Host’s Social Media Manager, Candice Juniper, is currently in Austin Texas for SxSWi – the digital component of a huge annual festival which revolves around uncovering new talent and ideas.
Here’s what she had to say on arrival:
Over the next 5 days I’ll be attending some of the 500+ talks and panels from the digital industries top brainiacs and nerds.
One of the interesting thing about SxSwi, and something that keeps it so relevant to our industry is that most of the talks and panels are actually selected by the attendees themselves. Speakers must pitch their ideas to the digital community and are allocated a spot in the packed schedule based on how many votes they attract. The need to attract votes, leads to ever increasingly weird titles for these talks. Titles such as:
Your meetings suck, and its your fault
Hate Gone Viral.
Group Chat App Attack!!
