SXSW seems to trump Spring Break for those of us who stay in town during the annual madness. I’m not participating this year but maybe next year…
For this week I have a medley with a heavy dose of SXSW stuff.
If you’re not sure what SXSW is, here is a look at what it is now for technology.
For the pool sharks out there, OpenPool has a great new way to enjoy shooting pool in the dark. This is still in the development stage but they will show it off at SXSW.
I like Apple, I like Matt Groening, who knew they worked together!
Coolhunting has a great Link About It this week.
They couldn’t ignore south by, 30 under 30 for SXSW
My favorites from the list are:
Matt Groening for Apple. Pre-Simpsons, subversive creator of Life is Hell appealing to college kids to get on the computer bandwagon. Certainly doesn’t take as much convincing now.
And the NYC/IO which is a competition to design a modern version of a NYC pay phone. Some smart people came up with some excellent designs, but it all feels too much like 1984. Maybe our future landscape is covered in screens.
If you’re in Austin this week enjoy our city and eat at Z’Tejas, in the bar.
