SXSW 2012!

The annual buzz has been in the air this past week with the kick-off of the SXSW (South By SouthWest) Music, Film & Interactive Conference down there in Austin, TX. Playing host to tens of thousands of participants and attendees from across the globe, this yearly happening draws the hippest, most influential, innovative and geekiest crowds imaginable for 10 days straight.

So far, we've watched a live stream of one of the trendiest techie competitions for Startups, the Start-up Bus competition, where teams from across the U.S. rode busses down to Austin while planning their pitches for their apps and their luck at a big break! We're also checking in with the daily 3-Minute video updates, salivating over all of the eats at those cool parties and wishing we were sitting in one of the groovy lounges quarreling over power sources for our technology. Sounds fun right?!

But for now, we've settled for living vicariously and virtually through friends (Woot-Woot Happstr!) and colleagues that are down yonder and of course, through Twitter, which is on fire with updates! And, we're swearing off staying back in California next year and are already making plans and strategizing about 2013. So, SXSW! We're a comin' next year. That, you can bet on.
