Grab a helmet, let’s go

We’ve landed at SXSW, and I’m pleased to announce the carry-on of Ledaig 10 Year survived just fine. Our Airbnb is literally across the street from the convention, and I’m walking to Caffe Medici right now for a quick caffeine shot before hitting registration. We’ll be focusing on the Interactive and Edu events, and it’s shaping up to be a crazy year for AI. We won’t be showing any of our platform this round, just downloading as much info as we can and networking hard.

If you will be in Austin this week we’d love to meet you! Email me at matt@schuler.earth and we’ll grab a drink.

About SXSW Interactive

SXSW Interactive focuses on emerging technology and is a breeding ground for new ideas and creative technologies. The festival includes a trade show, speakers, parties, and a startup accelerator.

Award ceremonies honor some of the industry’s most important innovators. Shmooze with the winners at the ReleaseIt at SXSW Awards, the SXSW Accelerator Awards, the Dewey Winburne Community Services Awards, and the SXSW Interactive Innovation Awards.

SXSW Interactive “has probably been the biggest of its kind in the world” since 2007.

If you’d like to connect, here are a few of the sessions and workshops we’re planning to attend. I’ll be mainly tweeting my notes rather than liveblogging, so that’s another great place to connect.
