Coming up next month, Element Fusion will be once again making the trip south to Austin, TX for the 2008 South by Southwest Interactive conference.
SXSW is actually three conferences in one, covering Interactive, Music, and Film during SXSW Week, March 7 - 16, 2008. SXSW Interactive is really the premier event for people working in the web industry. The conference features nearly five full days and offers panels, keynotes, a trade show, and other events featuring the top minds in the field. SXSW covers a wide range of topics from business development on the web to social networking to technology, design, and even tactical topics like HTML and CSS. In years past, SXSW has been a favorite launching point for new "Web 2.0" applications. Nearly anyone working on the web can benefit from something at this conference, even if it is only for the opportunities to network. And like many conferences, some of the best information is found in the form of meeting and sharing ideas with the smart people you meet throughout the week.
I'm looking forward to panels on design, social networking, CMS systems, and web startups. Speakers include: Jason Fried, Jim Coudal, Jason Santa Maria, Kathy Sierra, Jeffrey Zeldman, and Jimmy Wales with keynotes by Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, community artist Frank Warren, and futurist Jane McGonigal.
While in Austin, we'll be looking to line-up meetings with customers, partners, and new friends. If you'd like to meet us at SXSW, you can find us in the online registrant directory. Send an email or leave your contact information below and we can provide email, phone, twitter, or other ways to reach us while at the conference. Hope to see you there!
