Being a huge techie (and nerd), I had wanted to come to SXSW for years. It had been called the “Woodstock for Techies,” a nexus of new trends and thoughts about the future of technology. This year, a group of 10 Sloanies came to experience the madness. Personally, for me, there were only a handfull of things I had wanted to get out of the conference.
- Inspiration â€“ There was going to be so many famous people, thought leaders, and innovators. Being a part of it, I hoped to glean some inspiration into my own life.
- Gain insight to the upcoming new trends
- Try to be â€œsocialâ€
- Eat some great Austin/Texas food and have a good time
In the following posts Iâ€™ll expound on each objective. But in summary, I was able to achieve each of my objectives. Not sure if itâ€™s something Iâ€™ll return to every year, but definitely something I would love to come back for in the near future.
