SxSW Wrap-up

As always, South by Southwest was the real conference highlight of the year. I tell people that if they can only go to one conference in a year, SxSW is the one to go to. It’s hard to match the sheer quantity of amazing people in one place anywhere else in the world. There is definitely a strong San Francisco contingent, but what really makes it fun is the people who come from all over to participate, thanks to the conference being so cheap. Also there is always a nice vibe with the film and music part overlapping a little bit, brings a little more diversity into the mix.

This year was certainly bigger than any other year I’ve been, and I can only imagine it’ll continue to get larger at least as long as our economic boom continues.
