Rain in Austin, PBS Kids, Innovative Cener – SXSW 2013

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSDay 1 of SXSW Interactive started out with rain. Everyone piled into the convention center to dry off and attend the first sessions of the event. The Samsung Blogger lounge opened and I met Brian Solis who gave me a copy of #WTF. While going from session to session, I ran into Pete Cashmore of Mashable. We had a brief but great conversation. I got to stop by the Roku – PBS booth where I not only learned about the new Roku 3 but also the 2 new channels from PBS on Roku. You will now be able to watch local public programming or shows like Downton Abbey. I then went to a couple events including Toys for Techies where I enjoyed some cool innovations. Finally I stopped outside the convention center to see the maker-booths. From 3D printers to banana piano keyboards....

#BWE09 – Touring Zappos 0

#BWE09 – Touring Zappos

On the first day of Blogworld, I headed to South Hall, got my badge, then – since I didn’t have the full pass and couldn’t watch sessions on day one – sat outside talking to the people to see what was going on. I ran into Brett from Mashable, Marla and Liz. They were congregating, talking about going somewhere. I thought it was just going to lunch at first, but when the Zappos bus showed up, I knew there was something more. Zappos sells shoes online. They also sell other items like handbags, clothing and housewears – but they are known best for the shoes. So it was exciting to see a company that relies solely on the internet to build their business. After all, many other companies started with a physical store. On the bus I met a lot of great people. Ryan – from Hubpages –...

#Bwe09 Day 2 – I got abducted…

This morning started late. For some reason (maybe the fact I didn’t sleep in 48 hours), I woke up at 10 AM. I don’t normally do that, but what is more interesting is I am in Pacific Time zone. So technically, I slept until noon. I got up, worked on some stats and headed off to the South Hall in Blogworld. I got registered and got a chance to really talk to some people. People like Hope from Windy city social and Rob Walch from Wizzard. Hope was very interesting for the short amount of time I talked with her. She shows me that no matter how many people say there are no more .com names, you can always find a .com to register. The most interesting point of the day, though was I met Marla from d-vin-ideas and Brett from Mashable. Marla asked me: “You wanna get...
