SXSW 2016: Day 5

17, Mar 2016

The last day of Interactive. You kinda fight a sense of relief because your brain is so saturated with ideas and talks and smart people that you kind of need a break, but you are sad because do you really have to wait all year for SXSWi to come around again and be inspired? (No, […]

15, Mar 2016

We ate the Blistered one. Monday…a fresh start anywhere, even at SXSW. After the Sunday slump you rally a little and are starting to feel the nagging “only 2 days left of Interacticve…only 2 days to pump my mind so full of inspiration I’ll run on dreams and starlight for the next 6 months.” No […]

12, Mar 2016

MY FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR, KIDS! SXSW is in full swing. Many Austin locals hate it because streets shut down and drunk techies take over, but I find it all inspirational and super fun.
