Geeking out SXSWi Style

I love SXSW. My love isn’t for the VIP parties, nor the awesome bands and not even for the premiering movies (and i love movies). For me its all about the great geek that is Interactive.

For years co-workers have attended and presented, and I’ve been fascinated by the findings they brought back. One year, I helped a friend who was competing in the Accelerator competition, and in exchange I got a free badge for the favor. From that moment on I was completely hooked. I love the mix of philosophy, tech, spectacle and heart.

So, this year I jumped through some hoops and was selected to be a SXSW Interactive Speakers Assistant. Basically this means I will help speakers and panelists with all the logistics of making sure their presentations go smoothly. Cool, right? Well today I just got the list of topics covered by “my” speakers & and am officially geeked out to meet these people.
