PostHeaderIcon From the floor of SXSW

So here I sit at the world famous South by South West Conference in Austin, Texas. For those that aren’t familiar, SxSW started as a music festival and over the years has become host to entertainment, interactive, and other types of media. Today the conference is split into 3 parts: Music, Film, and Interactive. I am here for the Interactive part.

So, what does Interactive cover? Just about any type of interactive media you can think of: online games, blogging, and many other forms of media (some I’ve never heard of). I laid out my schedule last night and have a fun-filled 4 days ahead.

Since OffAssist has been trying to expand out social media presence, that is the track I am most interested in. I start off with a “How to make the most of SxSW” class and from there jump straight into the Social Media craziness.

Of course, that is once everything starts. For now, I’m enjoying the mix of people here. Colored hair and piercings mix with suit and tie and everything in between. Of course, there are several people with suit and tie, colored hair, and piercings all in one. And I’ve heard 7 or 8 different languages, and at least 4 different versions of English since I’ve been here.

Should make for an interesting weekend.
