SXSW: Day 1 Recap

Tim McAlpineComment

 Matt Davis, Gene Blishen and I are attending the 20th annual SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin, Texas. 

"Part musical festival, part film festival, part tech-head confab, SXSW is a unique event in the pop-culture firmament, bringing massive stars and indie up-and-comers in music, movies, and tech together in the Texas hill country of Austin." – Entertainment Weekly

It really is an amazing spectacle, with close to 30,000 attendees and more than 3,000 speakers. It's impossible to experience everything, so you have to pick and choose your adventure. Each night, Matt, Gene and I are sitting down to record a video recap of what we saw and how it could possibly relate to the credit union world.
